Downtown Decorative Crosswalk Work Upcoming

The City of Greensboro would like to announce an improvement project planned for recoating and repair of decorative pedestrian crosswalks along Elm Street. These improvements will include Street Stamping and Restriping at all crossings along Elm Street from Washington Street to Summit Avenue as well as the intersection of Davie Street and Friendly Ave.

Due to weather constraints, the project schedule is subject to change. However, when the project is underway, the areas under construction will require a total closure of Elm Street, Davie Street, Summit Avenue and Bellemeade Street with No Parking restrictions and towing enforcement, and various lane closures along Market Street and Friendly Avenue.

All vehicles should be removed from the work area before 8 AM on the day of construction. Any vehicle left in the work area will be towed to the Elm/McGee lot.

The tentative project schedule is as follows:

April 27: Elm Street will be closed from Washington Street to Market Street.

May 11: Elm Street will be closed from Market Street to Friendly Avenue.

May 18: The east and west crossings along Market Street will be completed resulting in lane closures along Market Street. The east crossing along Friendly Avenue will be completed resulting in lane closures along Friendly Avenue. Davie Street will be closed from Market Street to Summit Avenue.

June 1: Elm Street will be closed from Friendly Avenue to Summit Avenue. Lane closures on Friendly Avenue at the west crossing.

June 8: Summit Avenue will be closed from Elm Street to Davie Street. Bellemeade Street will be closed from Elm Street to Greene Street.

June 15: Elm Street will be closed from Friendly Avenue to Summit Avenue and from Summit Avenue to Lindsay Street.

The end result of this pedestrian enhancement project will provide those traveling Downtown Greensboro with crossings that are highly visible to not only improve safety but the overall appearance of the Elm Street corridor as well.

Please feel free to contact the City of Greensboro at 373-CITY should you have any questions or concerns.
