Depot Street Revitalization Begins

Work on Depot Street revitalization is underway. Portland Utilities, Greeneville Water Commission's contractor, has started work on Depot Street between Irish Street and Main Street. The road will be closed in this area, but sidewalks will remain open so the businesses on Depot Street can be accessed by the public.
A Groundbreaking Ceremony was held Nov. 27 with a large crowd in attendance.
The work is part of the planned Downtown Redevelopment Project which includes, among other things, utility upgrades and streetscape improvements along a stretch of Depot Street from its intersection with College Street to near the railroad depot building. Those improvements include creating wider sidewalks and landscaping with a focus on the block of Depot Street between Main and Irish streets as a “festival” location.
Please see accompanying map of downtown parking that will be available during this work.
