Sunday preview: Road construction bonds could be on May election ballot

GREENVILLE — It is no secret that many of Greenville’s streets and roads need to be completely rebuilt. Anyone who drives on them can tell you that.

Whether local residents will agree to pay to get them fixed is another question.

The Greenville City Council received a briefing last week on 11 streets which city engineers believe need to be reconstructed, and two more which they feel should be built to help relieve mounting traffic problems. A vote to approve the issuance of bonds to fund the projects could be included on the May municipal election ballot. But the work won’t come cheap.

“You’re talking about $30 million in projects here,” said City Manager Steve Alexander.
