14th Street Rail Crossing To Be Closed

A Greenville street will be shut down for a month as crews work to improve train traffic through the city.

Starting Monday the 14th Street railroad crossing will be closed to traffic to help with the construction of the new connecting track. The crossing is adjacent to Beatty Street, between Dickinson Avenue and Evans Street.

The city says a detour will be set up using Dickinson Avenue, 10th Street and Evans Street. Access to homes and businesses will still be permitted within the closed street.

    Okay osters you are telling on yourself. You either aren't a good driver or you simply don't care. Either way don't be a risk for others on the road.

    I don't even see why anyone tries to go down Greenville Boulevard, there's too many cars on it. I try to avoid that stretch at all costs. Also, aren't they supposed to build a Wal-Mart down on Tenth St. near Portertown Road? That would alleviate much of the traffic on the Boulevard.

    Ya'll must have some worthless mechanics. I go over the G'ville Blvd tracks 4 times a day. I haven't needed an alignment in 3 years. Now the crossing is bad I do not argue that but realign every 2 weeks? No way that can be true on a properly functioning vehicle.

    To all who don't think the tracks by best buy are that bad, I've never crossed them at over 20mph, yet I had to constantly realign both my Mustang and my F250 before I started avoiding that route, haven't had to do it in the 5 months since, used to be a bi-weekly thing. And the F250 has a heavy duty steering system built for the large tires it's runing...

    60 MPH down Greenville Blvd. when are you driving? I wish I could just get up to 45 mph most of the time...

    60? Try 30. That road is the definition of the rolling roadblock. Everyone complains about speeding. I don't see it. I've never seen people so afraid to go as fast as the speed limit indicates. 10 under all the time. Don't get me started on peoples inability to park around here.

    I have never seen anyone going 60mph by walmart it is impossible with everyone going 15mph down the whole road. It is a proven fact the faster you go over bumps the smoother it is. So do not slam on the brakes and go over them slowly that is what causes your problems.
