The City of Greenville broke ground on the Cultural Corridor project, a $4.3 million roadway improvement that will support pedestrian connectivity between Main Street and Heritage Green (Downtown Greenville’s cultural and arts destination).
In addition to serving as the pedestrian path to The Children’s Museum of the Upstate, library, and Upcountry History Museum (among other cultural spots), the corridor sees an average of 13,400 vehicles per day, and is often used as a through-street.
- Widening sidewalks
- Adding landscaping
- Enhancing lighting
- Upgrading traffic signals
College Street will be reduced to three lanes from its current four lanes to reduce speed + city leaders are working with SCDOT to improve Academy Street.
This week, City Council approved $6 million from a $20 million state budget allocation to fund the Cultural Corridor and the work on Academy Street.
Work is expected to be complete in late 2024.
