Once the 10th Street Connector opens they will have a very direct route. Just get on 33 and head straight down until you reach the hospital! Granted, that route has plenty of stop lights along the way.

Bypasses are created so large volumes of traffic can bypass local roads and thus decrease travel times. It also reduces the volume of traffic on local roads. As has been pointed out already, there is already an almost direct route from Simpson to the west Greenville area. If a person doesn't like that route you can always go west on 33, turn right onto Greenville Blvd and then take the northern 264 bypass around Greenville. I don't know if it's any faster but there is certainly less traffic that way.

Even before the connector started, I have been taking the 264 loop around Greenville to the Medical District. It is a 14 mile trip vs. a 7 mile trip, but it gets me there about 2-5 minutes faster AND with much less traffic frustration. When the connector is done it will help, however ECU traffic will always create a slowdown with that direct route in the morning and somewhat in the 5:00 traffic.

Target is remodeling their store on Evans. The food court will now be a Starbucks and the rest of the store is getting a face lift as well.

The pirate car wash on 14th street behind the shell station at Charles was torn down. This entire area seems like it's slowly clearing out. I imagine they'll end up revitalizing that area once campus edge starts going up.

I Really think that Superblock around 10th/14th/Charles/Evans will really change for the better in the next couple of years. Especially with the Millennial Campus happening just East, and the 10th St connector.

Not sure if gutting and rebuilding the houses would be best, or what.
