Traffic project to cause delays in Greenville

Greenville – Motorists traveling north along Wesley Street in Greenville may encounter traffic delays beginning this week.

The Texas Department of Transportation is beginning work on a milling and overlay project next on State Highway 34. The project, with an estimated cost of $308,800, will rehabilitate the existing roadway by milling approximately two inches of asphalt, applying a sealcoat and finishing with a new layer of hot mix.

Work will include Wesley Street, from Joe Ramsey Boulevard to O'Neal Street and the east portion of O'Neal from Wesley to Johnson Street.

The project will begin on O'Neal Street and work south on Wesley toward Joe Ramsey Blvd, Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and while work is being done.

Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling in the area. The project is expected to take approximately 45 days to complete.
