TRAFFIC ALERT: Arlington Blvd. closures and detours for road work to start Wednesday


Work continues on the rehabilitation of Arlington Boulevard, Greenville’s most traveled street that is maintained by the City.

The project will be split into two sections, the first of which will impact the portion of Arlington Boulevard between Hooker Road and Evans Street with closures that are scheduled to last until late summer of 2019.

During the work, motorists will be detoured to Hooker Road, Greenville Boulevard, and Evans Street.

After the section is completed, construction will begin between Evans Street and Greenville Boulevard.

That work is scheduled to be completed in the winter of 2019.

Motorists will be detoured onto Evans Street, Red Banks Road, and Greenville Boulevard during the time.

The first street closure of eastbound lanes between Hooker Road and Evans Street will begin tomorrow.

The construction will include work to reconstruct the pavement surface, replace aging stormwater infrastructure, upgrade ADA ramps, and construct a greenway path and sidewalk.

Each section will have two construction phases.

The City will maintain one-way traffic in the direction of the travel lanes that are not under construction in each phase, i.e., the westbound lanes will be accessible while the eastbound lanes are closed, and vice versa.

Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists during construction.

Access will be maintained to all schools, businesses, and residences throughout the project.
