Greenville leaders discuss upgrades to 10th Street corridor

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – On Tuesday night Greenville leaders gathered together to discuss making some upgrades to the 10th Street corridor.

This comes after several wrecks and the recent death of an ECU student crossing the street near Copper Beech town homes.

The state and its consultants Kimley Horn presented several options to improve issues along the road.

Some include islands for pedestrians to wait on while crossing the road, closing intersections, and restricting turns at others. The change specifically targets the intersection where 10th Street and Greenville Boulevard intersect.

Project Manager, with the 10th Street project manager Kimley Horn says “the median they are looking for is a fence with a lot of plantings which will help pedestrians cross in areas where it’s safe.”
