Portertown Road Re-Opens In Greenville

A road that has been blocked off for several months in Greenville has re-opened.

The barriers were removed from Portertown Road after 8:00 p.m. Monday night.

The 1.4 million dollar project started back on July 19th to replace the existing bridge on Portertown over Hardee Creek.

In addition to the new bridge, sidewalks were added along side of it.

    Thank goodness, I was so afraid to drive the other route because I was afraid that old tobacco bard on the corner being held up by vines was gonna come falling down on top of me whenever I would turn that corner... It is a true disater waiting to happen. Plus using Portertown Rd. is so much quicker and not as curvy. Nice area out there though!

    I don't know how the roads are in Jersey, and I don't want to know, but have you ever driven down East 10th Street?

    Whatever happened to the concept of making our streets more accessible and complete? Some people use wheelchairs, walk, run, or ride bikes as well as pay for these roads.

    @ anonymous, my bet is that Walmart is going to switch locations, and go for the new to be zoned commercial area across the street on 33. Due to the 4 to the floor, go for development over neighborhoods, City Council members. I also bet Walmart has spoken with these four cronies and a deal was struck before the council vote to amend the future land use plan. Just wait and see...
