Some of the much anticipated improvements to First Street will be finished on Monday, February 17.
City of Greenville crews plan to remove the "No Parking" signs and open up parking on the North side of the street.
Crews recently finished repaving the street - with several changes to the traffic flow. The four lanes of traffic between Pitt and Summitt Streets have been reduced to two to allow for more on-street parking along the Town Common. Bicycle lanes are currently marked and will be properly striped once the weather cooperates enough.
Construction has taken several months to complete as City workers re-worked the sidewalks to allow for handicapped access, Greenville Utilities completed some underground utilities upgrades, and road crews repaved the stretch of road.
The changes are part of an overall effort to make the Town Common more accessible and the area around it more attractive to economic development.
