Fire Tower Road is now barrel-free.
All of the orange traffic barrels that drivers have navigated around for the past 2-1/2 years are now gone. Only a few traffic cones remain.
The busy Greenville thoroughfare went from 2 lanes to 5 in a 2.6-mile stretch from Memorial Drive to Corey Road.
Though often lamented for taking so long, the $20.8-million project is actually finishing up about a month early. Now Fire Tower Road is five-lanes from Charles Boulevard to Memorial Drive.
Construction crews say they still have to do some minor touch-up work on the project.
