The City of Greenville hosted a virtual public meeting on January 25, to discuss a road improvement project for the section of College/Buncombe Street between North Main Street and Heritage Green, referred to as the Cultural Corridor. Proposed improvements include street resurfacing, landscaping, multi-use paths, traffic signal upgrades and street/pedestrian lighting.
The goals of the project include:
- Revitalize economic growth along the corridor
- Encourage drivers to utilize Academy Street as a “downtown bypass”
- Provide/enhance pedestrian and bicycle mobility between Main Street and Heritage Green
- Implement recommendations from the Downtown Master Plan and Downtown Traffic Master Plan
At the meeting, City staff and the consultant team provided an overview of the project and attendees had an opportunity to ask questions and provide input on the proposal. A recording of the meeting will be posted on the project web page.
