Motorists traveling Healthcare Drive on the campus of Greenville Regional Hospital can expect minor delays, as repaving and construction work is set to begin this week. The project, funded by Greenville Regional Hospital, includes a new curb, gutters, and a turning lane for outgoing traffic.
Although this construction affects the main entrance to Greenville Regional Hospital, President and CEO Brian Nall says a road crew will be on hand to direct traffic and minimize traffic delays during this pavement upgrade.
“Healthcare Drive, which is the main artery to the hospital’s entrance, has become worn and riddled with potholes from years of traffic and harsh winter conditions,” Nall says. “We’re always looking for ways to improve hospital facilities and the patient and visitor experience. It’s a welcome improvement for all those who visit our campus or the Emerald Pointe residences on Honey Locust Lane.”
Barring inclement weather, the project is expected to be complete by mid-September.
