Early development for a large-scale highway connector is making good progress, but is still years away from completion. Lee Jenkins has more.
The thirty-five million dollar 10th Street Connector Project is speeding through its acquisition phase. Development rights have been settled for two thirds of the 193 properties affected by the project, some of which are businesses and residences.
According to the Greenville Daily Reflector, workers have already begun demolishing vacant homes along Farmville Boulevard and other streets.
The acquisition process began last summer and is scheduled to be completed in October. It will be followed by utility relocation, concluding in the fall of next year. Construction on the four-lane roadway is projected to begin in the spring of 2015 and should last for 30 months. It will cover 1.4 miles and connect ECU and Vidant Medical Center. I’m Lee Jenkins.
