GREENVILLE, N.C. — Work on Greenville’s 2021 Street Resurfacing Project is beginning Monday, kicking off a process that will see nearly 11 miles of city streets receive a surface upgrade.
The Greenville City Council in January awarded a $1.2-million contract to S.T. Wooten Corporation for the project. The contract provides for milling, resurfacing, deep patch repairs, ADA improvements, and pavement markings.
City Civil Engineer Lynn Raynor says it is a necessary step to get roads repaired.
“What citizens can expect are seeing wheelchair ramps upgraded if they are not ADA compliant on the streets being resurfaced. The major part is the streets will be milled,” said Raynor. “There are a lot of things here that draw people from outside of Greenville to the Greenville area and so we certainly want tourists and other people coming from other places to have a good experience when they are coming to Greenville.”
Raynor says people living in the city will benefit as better infrastructure brings in economic development.
A total of 10.6 lane miles on 18 streets are scheduled to be resurfaced. Work related to this project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
