City staff, along with traffic engineering consulting firm Stantec, will present the results of the post-implementation traffic study of the Augusta Street road diet on Thursday, October 13, at 5:30 pm at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2310 Augusta Street.
There will be a presentation and time for questions from the public.
Beginning in March 2022, the City of Greenville implemented a road diet along the residential section of Augusta Street, from Augusta Place to Crystal Street. Work included restriping the road to convert the existing four-lane section into a three-lane roadway, with one lane in each direction and a two-way left turn lane in the center lane.
The new lane configuration gives left-turning cars a space to wait without blocking traffic. It also gives vehicles turning left off of side roads a refuge before merging into traffic.
Visit the Augusta Street Safety Study page on the City of Greenville website for additional details.
Prepared by the City of Greenville.
