Work to install drainage improvements began in mid-July on Greenville Loop Road, but the project is close to wrapping up.

Weather permitting, on Monday crews will begin to put down the final layer of pavement on Greenville Loop Road and Pine Grove Drive. The work will require nightly lane closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. for about two to three weeks. The seven miles of repaving on Greenville Loop Road is expected to be complete in early October and cost the city about $1.4 million, according to city officials.

Crews began paving Pine Grove Drive between Greenville Loop Road and the entrance to Hugh MacRae Park on Sept. 14.

According to a release from the city, this project is part of the city’s $41 million plan to make repairs to streets and other public facilities over the next five years. Five cents on the city’s tax rate have been set aside to fund the plan and cannot be used for anything else.
