"March Madness" On Fire Tower Rd.

It's a sign of progress, but it also may create some "march madness" for traffic in one spot.

Work continues on Fire Tower Rd. in Greenville and Winterville. The Department of Transportation has announced they will close the intersection of Fire Tower and Corey Rd. in Greenville on March 2.
Crews need to do the final grading of the pavement there.

The work is expected to take three full weeks, and is scheduled to be complete by March 23.

Traffic will be detoured down Fire Tower Rd. to County Home Rd. to Worthington Rd. Only local traffic only will be allowed down Corey Rd.

All of the construction on Fire Tower Rd. is scheduled to be complete by October.

    From whitebride apts you can see the intersection from your front door. You will have to dodge and weave construction equipment 90 degrees and basically all of firetower will be open to to your right. Then take a left until you see the stop sign. Then you stop, and turn around and go back in the opposite direction. You are there. The man in the white beard will answer all your prayers. Merry Christmas!

    Like cmgt said, the majority of people have NO IDEA how a project is built. All traffic considerations come into play with something like this and thats why work cannot go as quickly or as soon as possible. It is impossible to completely shut a road down in the heart of Greenville...therefore work must be done slower to ensure everyones safety, including impatient and confused drivers. Maybe all you drivers that have to take that route should get up a few minutes earlier to get where you're going instead of rushing before you kill a contractor or inspector on that job. Just my two cents!

    That's what you get when you have a bunch of Southern people trying to build a road.

    Take a deep breath and relax. We have much bigger problems in this country than being worried about a 3 week detour. J, when you get to Covenant please say a prayer that the people making these pious comments are expressing their rage online rather than on the road.
