Great question! According to news articles, that section of Dickinson Ave was supposed to be closed for only 15 weeks in the fall of 2016 and was supposed to reopen on December 5th, 2016.

4 months later, it's still not open. It hasn't even been repaved yet. Guess they hit a big snag somewhere. I know the businesses in the area can't wait for it to reopen. The t-shirt shop down there has got to be feeling it.

You wonder why they couldn't have done the Dickinson Ave streetscape project (at least from the bridge to Reade Circle) at the same time as the bridge...they've only been waiting a few years for the 10th St project. Would have been nice to have Dickinson complete as the full 10th St connector was still being completed...as a gateway into downtown.

I guess that may require more planning than they are capable of.

My question is...who said 15 weeks?

Crazy how fast a parking deck can be thrown up these days...it's kinda scary to be honest.

Really excited for the Dickinson apartments to get underway as well. The whole area is going to look & feel so much better than it was. 1000 times better.

Pirate Fest draws record crowd.

PirateFest draws record crowd - Daily Reflector

Quote:
A record number of people attended PirateFest, which featured live performances, food trucks, activities and a policy that allowed the consumption of alcohol on the Town Common.

The 11th annual PirateFest was held from Friday to Saturday and offered a wide range of events including BMX performances, concerts, food vendors and family-friendly activities.

Bianca Shoneman, director of Uptown Greenville, said between 30,000 to 32,000 people attended the event over the two-day span.

“The festival was very well received,” Shoneman said. Shoneman added that vendors reported good sales on their merchandise and several food trucks at the event sold out.

People on Saturday attended the final concert which featured “Rusted Root,” who performed on the Town Common amphitheater stage. Shoneman said the concert was well attended. “It was a great day to be a Pirate and in the city of Greenville,” she said.

Alcohol on Saturday was served in two designated areas and people were allowed to take alcoholic beverages into a designated area of the Town Common. Shoneman said there were no alcohol-related issues.

“We implemented the alcohol policy in the Town Common, which allowed people to enter into the Town Common with an open container,” Shoneman said. “People were allowed to purchase an alcoholic beverage and walk into the park and consume it.” The policy will allow promoters to bring in more attractive options, Shoneman said.

Shoneman noted that organizers appreciated the sponsors and close to 2,200 volunteers that helped to make the event so successful.
“We hope that city dwellers and residents continue to come out and support,” Shoneman said.

Greenville Police Department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter said the event went smoothly on both Friday and Saturday. There were no concerns, arrests or issues throughout the event, Hunter said.
