The City of Greenville is joining forces with the North Carolina Department of Transportation to make improvements to a 1.3-mile section of Dickinson Avenue (SR 1598) from Memorial Drive (N.C. 11) to Reade Circle (SR 1610).
Plans include repairing existing drainage systems, replacing materials under the pavement, repaving the road, and improving pedestrian and bicycle accommodations along the corridor.
