Construction On New Rail Connection To Begin Monday

Real progress starts Monday on improving backed up traffic at railroad crossings in Greenville.

Crews in Greenville will break ground Monday on a new rail connection that will relieve the serious traffic back-ups when trains switch tracks, especially near J.H. Rose High School. City officials say the new way for trains to make turns through Greenville will eliminate major delays. Some federal funds will help pay for this project.

At some point, there will be a detour around the railroad crossing at 14th Street, but exactly when hasn't been announced. The project should be finished by March.

    To: to Claudia. Essentially, I agree with you. I never shop at the Chinese Flea Market. However, I have to cross the railroad there both going to and coming from work every day. Fixing that, permanently, should be a high priority.
