Construction underway in historic section of Dickinson Ave. in Greenville

Construction to improve and upgrade a historic section of Dickinson Avenue in Greenville is scheduled to begin this week.

A North Carolina Department of Transportation contractor will replace the drainage systems and water and sewer lines, repave the roadway and improve the sidewalks for a 1.3-mile section between South Memorial Drive and Reade Circle.

The $15.7 million contract was awarded earlier this year.

The section being closed today should be reopened by next spring.
