GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Crews will install the second mural at the intersection of Cotanche Street and Reade Circle as part of the Emerald Loop.

The installation is designed by Seattle-based artist team Haddad/Drugan. Work will begin on Sunday, May 22nd at 6:00am and will continue through Monday, May 23rd into the evening, with contingency dates of May 24th and May 25th.

This intersection will be closed during this time but detours will be set up.

Three more designs are planned for intersections on 5th Street after the BUILD streetscape project with the City of Greenville is completed. The others will be designed next year to help define the “loop” that will be experienced by those riding the Emerald Express Trolley.

This will activate the intersection and is the second of a repeating hexagonal design that represents the molecular shape of the emerald.

The material that will be used is a product called DuraTherm® and will hopefully have a life span of 10 years.

The Emerald Loop was chosen to be the project that would transform Greenville’s Center City through the art.
