The project to replace the Grimesland Bridge over the Tar River is ahead of schedule and is expected to be complete by the beginning of next year.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation is replacing Grimesland Bridge, technically two bridges built in 1954, on Grimesland Bridge Road.


The project began in March 2009 and will be complete ahead of the scheduled completion date of July 2011, DOT Engineer Shawn Mebane said.

use of old bridge

Greenville let's use this old bridge in a way similar to the old Greene St. Bridge at the town commons? Let it continue as a footbridge connecting the greenway across the Tar River into River Park North. Act now, save money on this rare opportunity.
