Weather permitting, all closures will be reopened by end of day Friday!

Way to screw the pooch on construction and detours today specifically. Continuing detours and construction past the 5am mark, thereby causing massive delays. Then its announced you will still be doi...ng roadwork tom, a day when many are traveling.
But hey, you're halting constructiin and detours thanksgiving day, when very few will be on roads. Thats brilliant (not really)

My brother an...d mom are still in Greenville, I moved on. But whenever I think of Greenville, there is a warm feeling in my heart. Great place to grow up in :) Hi to my dear friends in Greenville See More

I've lived in six cities in three states and have now been in Greenville for more than 10 years and never want to move anywhere else. Greenville is truly a special place. Not only are there great peop...le to meet and make lifelong friendships with, Greenville is an awesome city in which to raise a family. There is so much to do and see...from cultural and arts events, great dining, and lots of recreational opportunities. We especially love all the parks. Absolutely an awesome place to live! See More

Greenville used to be the best kept secret but the cats out of the bag!! The best people, restaurants, schools, housing, low taxes, and shopping. So close to the mountains and the beach and nestled be...tween Charlotte and Atlanta. Love my hometown! See More

Your handling of the Flaggers at the NCAA event was appalling. These folks were peaceful, and caused no harm to anyone, but your police force treated them as criminals, and and made then stop their pe...aceful protest. They have a right to a peaceful protest as much as anyone else, and you buckled under the pressure from the NCAA? Why? The NCAA doesn't even know what restroom men are supposed to use! Had the shoe been on the other foot, and this been a Black Lives Matter march you would of welcomed them with open arms, even though they want to kill you police. Wonder no more why the public doesn't trust it's government, or it's police to do the right thing. See More

I've lived in the Greenville area since 1976, and have seen its transformation! There was a time when parts of downtown seemed dead or dangerous. Now, there is natural beauty, culture, a vibrant arts... scene, culinary excellence, theatre and more. Maybe a wee bit too much construction going on right now .... hope the growth is kept in check. Yeah, THAT Greenville. See More
