GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – More detours and more construction cones are coming to Greenville.
The city has placed a project for bid on the town creek culvert. The $13 million project will support more than 400 acres of storm water drainage.
The new culvert will allow water to flow properly and prevent flooding in areas like Reade Circle.
Construction could mean drivers will be taking a detour for a few months, but it wouldn’t start until the beginning of next year.
“Citizens will start to see detours around that time and construction is expected to last about two years,” explained Lisa Kirby, senior engineer.
Kirby said the bid opening is on September 21st. At that time, a construction company will be assigned to the culvert project.
