Several roads throughout the city of Greenville will soon give residents a smoother commute.
The Greenville City Council passed resolution 2022-34 to mill and resurface several streets at
the July 11 regular scheduled meeting.

The bids were reviewed by the Public Works Director, who awarded the contract to Midsouth
Paving, Inc.

Their bid for the resurfacing project came in at $1,153,210.90.

Greenville Mayor Dexter McLendon said he was happy to have this latest resolution pass the
council. He appeared enthusiastic about getting these repairs underway and finished on time.
McLendon made doubly sure to ask the Midsouth representative if he was sure road repairs
would be completed on schedule.

The rep. assured both the Mayor and the council that the job would be completed not only on
time, but on budget.

The sections scheduled for resurfacing are as follows:
South Street (Administration to Oliver)
Church Street (Parmer to Herbert)
Redbud Lane (North Perry to Country Club)
Harrison Street (Herbert to Perdue)
Glendale Avenue (Redbud to Boutwell)
North Pine (Cedar to the Dead End)
Myrtle Drive (Burnett to Gates)
Interstate Drive (Tractor Supply to Hampton Inn)
Perdue Street (Government to South Park)
Parmer Street (Harrison to South Conecuh)
Government Street (Bolling to Valley Drive)
Norvel Street (Government to Valley Drive)
Lucille Street (South College to Dohrimer)
Alice Street (Redmond to Dohrimer)
Included in the repaving project is the parking lot of the Nutrition Center, Greenville City Hall
parking lot and the tennis courts.
