Planning is underway for Phase 2 of the Augusta Street Safety Improvement Plan, as the City seeks community input on conceptual plans for a variety of roadway improvements. The recommendations focus on both the “residential section” (Cureton Street to Mauldin Road) and the “commercial section” (Cureton Street to Church Street) of Augusta Street and are designed to improve the flow of traffic and significantly reduce the number of vehicle conflict points along the corridor.
The City of Greenville will host a public meeting on Tuesday, February 27 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2310 Augusta Street, to provide an update on Phase 2 of the Augusta Street Improvement Project. The meeting will begin with a presentation outlining how public input has shaped the planning process, followed by a facilitated question and answer session and an outline of next steps. Afterward, attendees will have an opportunity to visit information stations to view drawings and speak with City staff.
Public input is a vital component of this project and the City is actively gathering feedback on the recommendations being proposed. Area residents, property owners and business owners are encouraged to review the project materials and submit their comments on the proposed safety improvements.
