Public Input sought for W. Poinsett Street project

The success of the “road diet” – or lane-reduction plan – on N. Main Street in Greer has the City of Greer and S.C. Department of Transportation now eyeing a similar approach to a stretch of W. Poinsett Street.

The lane-reduction plan is gaining popularity in cities for improved safety benefits to pedestrians and traffic flow for drivers as dedicated turn lanes do not delay through traffic. A traffic study on W. Poinsett Street indicated that reducing the current four lanes to two through lanes and a center turn lane would provide the same benefits as seen on N. Main Street since that work was completed in 2022.

The proposed plan would affect W. Poinsett Street between N. Main Street and Middleton Way.

A drop-in style meeting with City officials and the Kimley-Horn design team is planned for November 16 from 5-7 p.m. at Greer City Hall with project displays for review and discussion. Residents are invited to drop in at Hall C anytime during that meeting.

Participants will have an opportunity to provide written comments on the proposed plan at the meeting. Written comments will be also accepted through Dec. 17 by email to or regular mail to Steve Grant, 301 E. Poinsett St., Greer, SC 29651.

Additional information is available by contacting Grant at 848-2181.
