One-way street to be converted to two-way


Greenville – A Greenville street will be changing directions. For the first time in more than 50 years, motorists will soon be able to drive in either direction on Crockett Street.

The Greenville City Council is scheduled Tuesday to convert Crockett, which is currently one-way westbound, to two-way operation.

Portions of Crockett Street were changed by the Council to one-way in 1957, in order to accommodate what had been the location of Greenville Junior High School. The main Post Office was later built at the same site and Crockett was kept one-way. In the past several months, the post office has been relocated and is now being renovated by the Greenville Electric Utility System (GEUS) to serve as a new consumer service center.
