Roundabouts are not the end-all for 4 way stop sign intersection problems. The state installed one at Ivy and Mills Rd and traffic backs up worse now than before they installed it. The problem surrounds people that can't tell the difference between a stop sign and a yield sign or they just don't know how a yield sign works. It gets pretty comical at times as people stop at the yield sign waiting on cars that aren't even in the roundabout yet. Go people go. School hours can see a 1/4 mile backup.

Agreed. Pitt Co needs to not get too dependent on round-a-bouts to solve their intersection problems. And 4 way stop signs at busy intersections need to be eliminated. That's just a cheap way to back traffic up. Its time for the State to invest in fixing antiquated intersections with turn lanes etc. They put this off waiting on a road widening project to be done. Every large city in NC has these issues on the outskirts of town. The State is too busy replacing old bridges that could last 10 more years then replacing old intersections that need it now.

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!
I am looking forward the most is the continued development of the Dickinson avenue corridor. From new businesses being announced to the streetscape project starting in August. Add in finally getting some traction on the Imperial site and 2019 has a lot of potential of being an exciting year!

It really will give that corner and area a more urban feel. Hopefully it will generate some new business with the old pharmacy building (in addition to being a boon to the existing businesses in the HT strip.

The HT shopping center is in need of a major update or even a demolition all together. I do totally agree with this student housing having a tremendous impact on that corner though!
