GREENVILLE, N.C. - A portion of Evans Street is expected to close this weekend as part of construction on the Town Creek Culvert project. This closure will follow the reopening of portions of Reade Circle and Cotanche Street, which is expected later this week.
The section of Reade Circle between Cotanche Street and East Fifth Street is expected to reopen to traffic on Thursday, February 13, 2020, weather permitting. This will include the intersection of Cotanche Street and Reade Circle, which has been closed since October.
Upon reopening, traffic on Reade Circle and Cotanche Street will revert to its pre-construction traffic pattern. Reade Circle will be one-way for northbound traffic (headed toward East Fifth Street), while Cotanche Street between East Fifth Street and Reade Circle will once again be one-way for southbound traffic (headed toward East 10th Street).
Following the reopening of Cotanche Street, the intersection of Evans Street and Reade Circle is expected to close on Saturday, February 15, weather permitting. This is part of a larger closure of Reade Circle between Cotanche Street and Dickinson Avenue. Evans Street at Reade Circle is expected to be closed for approximately six months.
Motorists traveling north on Evans Street are encouraged to take West 14th Street to Dickinson Avenue, or East 10th Street to Cotanche Street and Reade Circle to get around the closure. Motorists attempting to travel south on Evans Street will be detoured to Reade Circle or Cotanche Street via Fifth Street.
Detour routes will be signed throughout the area. A visual representation of the detour route is included below.
