A Greenville intersection is open to drivers, but a portion of 10th Street remains closed.

Thursday, N. C. Department of Transportation announced the intersection of Evans Street and 10th Street is open for traffic. While drivers now have access to it, a portion of 10th Street remains closed to continue work on the 10th Street Connector Project.

The intersection to Evans St. is open in both directions. If you are on 10th St., heading west to turn onto Evans, it's also open. The new portion of 10th, heading toward the new bridge over Dickenson Ave., is still closed.

Motorists are asked not to go around the barricades for the safety of themselves and crews working in the area.

The 10th Street Connector Project is expected to be complete in summer of 2019.

Interesting note from this meeting.

Quote:
Rezoned property on the eastern right-of-way of Frog Level Road near Davenport Farm Road, changing 6.4 acres from office to residential and slightly less than one acre to neighborhood commercial. The intent of the change is to have vertical mixed use buildings with residential or office above commercial space and single use building that are integrated in a walkable street pattern. Scotland Management and Happy Trails Farm requested the change which staff recommended the change.

Living literally right across the street from this proposed development, it's a weird place for a walkable development. Wonder if they're aiming for a Southern Village-esque feel - the 'drive-to' urbanism.

I'm near this too and they should put in some round-a-bout intersections put in here before things get really out of hand. The current roads and intersections can't handle the traffic well as it is but with the new construction adding new homes and rezoning changes like this, it's going to be horrible. I'd love to see Greenville plan ahead for once when it comes to infrastructure. The rush hour crowds for work and the two schools on Forlines make the intersections on forlines and davenport insanely inefficient twice every workday. The round-a-bout on portertown and firetown has done a great job improving the efficiency and safety of the intersection. These intersections are considerably more congested during peak hours.

I notice this building being renovated last week and wondered what was planned for it. Very nice addition to the Uptown area!

I know I’m considered the biggest critic of Greenville/Pitt County, but I do have one genuine question that isn’t meant to be negative necessarily:

Were there any job announcements in Greenville/Pitt County this year with +50 jobs? I was having a discussion with someone recently and they said it had been, but I don’t remember such announcements. Thanks for any replies!

Thank you, GarnetAndBlack.

What do you all look forward to most in 2019 for Greenville? Personally, I canít wait for the opening of the 10th St Connector; to see Greenville from a different angle on a regular basis will be amazing!
