WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Crews are expected to start work on the installation of a half-mile section of sidewalk along Greenville Loop Road this week.
The sidewalk should be complete late this summer and will connect Bradley Creek Elementary to the Greenville Village Community.
The goal of the sidewalk is to create a safer walking route for students and parents.
Drivers in the area should prepare for delays during the project, which will involve lane shifts and narrower lanes.
According to the city, the project is partially funded by a $211,000 federal "Safe Routes to Schools" grant, with another $153,000 from the city.
