Having driven on Stantonsburg Road at 1:00 AM coming from Vidant last September, I agree! I hit a couple of reds on Stantonsburg and it was a ghost town. One of those lights took a while to change. I can't remember which one it was, though.

With ECU starting to use Minges for more civic events, I could see them being warm to the idea of hosting the minor league team for a season or two. Split gate & concessions & parking with the cpl team...tuck a "beer garden" in a corner and stop sales pretty early if they have a problem with the alcohol...and Greenville has their own baseball team.
Wasn't looking to extend this topic, but I came across this article while I was reading Baseball America:

There should be all sorts of median barriers and right-turn only entrances and exits at most of the businesses in that stretch.
Let's hope so. I drive it every single day and traffic already crawls through this area. I agree there should be median barriers preventing some turns. Trust me - I've been the victim of an accident that did $8000 damage when a student pulled out of CB and broadsided me. I want some relief in this area. Unfortunate that the city didn't track the growth in this area and possibly curb the types of building they allowed. Not sure that those huge student housing areas needed to be so closely located to one of the worst intersections in the city.

This is getting absolutely ridiculous... There are 5, FIVE!!! mattress stores right in the Evans/Greenville Blvd intersection area. Can the city not do anything about this? They are eating up valuable lots.

Don't worry, more than half of them will be gone in a few years. A mattress store is like an antique shop. Any given area can only support so many, and the rest close.
