T-N: Greenville Highway roundabout work to start; Road to close for 90 days

From today’s Times-News:

Construction on the major component of a roundabout project in Hendersonville is slated to start on Wednesday, July 17.

A contractor for the N.C. Department of Transportation will close a section of Greenville Highway in order to complete construction of a box culvert and roundabout at the intersections with Erkwood Drive and Shepherd Street.

The roundabout will help realign the offset intersections, improve the traffic flow and reduce crashes in the area, DOT says.

Crews from Graham County Land Company will have 90 days to complete the work and re-open Greenville Highway.

 Erkwood Drive and Shephard Street will also be closed to through traffic.

A marked detour will utilize Brooklyn Avenue, N.C. 176 and North Highland Lake Road.

Other construction crews have been preparing for this major phase of the work by moving utilities and beginning installation of the box culvert.

  1. In 50 years I’ve seen one crash there. It was the late 70s. A man was leaving Sherman’s Grocery (now Flat Rock Business Center). Sally Boyd and I saw him crash into the culvert. No other car involved. We took him to the ER. Cam was furious at us because he said the guy could have sued us😂
