GREENVILLE- The N.C. Department of Transportation will perform a ‘marathon weekend’ of construction, working around the clock for one weekend, as part of the 10th Street Connector project.
After the evening rush hour, at 7 p.m. on April 26, NCDOT will close the intersection of Memorial Drive and Stantonsburg Road. Crews will reopen the Greenville intersection by 5 a.m. April 29. These dates are weather permitting.
The NCDOT will raise the elevation of the intersection by wedging the intersection with asphalt, preparing it for the final layer of asphalt. Closing the intersection is needed because of the amount of asphalt that has to be placed and for the safety of the workers, as well as the public.
Traffic will be detoured onto Arlington Boulevard, Dickinson Avenue and N.C. 43/ 5th Street. The streets between Arlington Boulevard and 14th Street should allow access for all businesses and residents to be maintained.
This work is part of the 10th Street Connector project. Once the project is completed, it will transform the Greenville road into a four-lane divided road with a landscaped median that directly links Memorial Drive to 10th Street at Evans Street.
