Greenville - The N.C. Department of Transportation has been hard at work
converting 10th Street in Greenville into a four-lane divided road with a
landscaped median that directly links Memorial Drive to 10th Street at Evans
Once completed by summer, 2019, the 10th Street Connector will
provide a vital connection between Vidant Medical Center and East Carolina
University (and Uptown Greenville Central Business District).
The 1.4 mile long connector is expected to reduce traffic
congestion and create greater connectivity with the construction of a bridge
over the CSX Rail Road.
Recent activity on the 10th Street Connector includes the grading
and paving of 9th Street, utility and drainage work on Evans Street, new lanes
on Farmville Boulevard to tie into Memorial Street.
DOT will soon be shifting traffic to new lanes on Farmville Blvd,
so work on existing lanes can take place.
