The City's seven-year paving plan just got a whole lot bigger.
Thanks to a matching grant from the Greenville Legislative Delegation Transportation Committee (GLDTC), Greenville now has double the money to pave city roadways. A total of 92 city streets - more than 26 miles of road - will now be targeted for repaving and repair.
City engineering director Clint Link received word Thursday that a 50-50 state match will grow the available funds from $6 to $12 million. The City will use the money to accelerate the seven-year project, with a new plan to complete a total of $12 million of work, all in 2023.
Link appreciated GLDTC's ongoing committment to the resurfacing program. "The approval is a testament to the strong partnership we have forged with the GLDTC and the commitment we both have to improve our roads and infrastructure in Greenville," Link said.
