The City of Greenville has experienced significant growth over the past few decades and is continuing to see an influx of downtown residential and commercial development.
Because an efficient transportation system is a critical component of Greenville’s future, the City, in partnership with the Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study, is developing a Downtown Transportation Master Plan to identify strategies that will improve mobility, traffic circulation and safety.
The study area includes the Central Business District (CBD), as well as major corridors that feed into downtown. The master plan will incorporate alternate modes of transportation and will include both a short-term plan for improvements that can be made within two to five years and a long-term plan for the safe and efficient movement of traffic over the next 10 years and beyond.
MASTER PLAN PUBLIC MEETING
The City and consultant HDR, Inc., will hold a public meeting for the project:
5-7 p.m., Tuesday, July 16
First Floor Conference Room, City Hall
206 S. Main St.
At the meeting, the project team will provide an overview of the project, discuss the work that has been done to-date and provide attendees with an opportunity to share their experiences and input.
PUBLIC ASKED TO PARTICIPATE IN TRANSPORTATION SURVEY
The team has also developed a short questionnaire designed to help them better understand how people travel to, from and around downtown and make recommendations for short- and long-term transportation improvement projects. The questionnaire is available online at https://publicinput.com/DowntownTraffic and the deadline to participate is July 23.
Anyone who lives and/or works downtown, as well as anyone who visits downtown, is invited and encouraged to attend the meeting and to complete the survey.
