Talk Synopsis
The City of Greenville, North Carolina, had the need for a more efficient connection between the western side of the city and downtown.  Their transportation plan called for extending Stantonsburg Road to Tenth Street while creating a grade separation over the CSX Railroad. This urban project crossed many environmental sites of concern with the potential for contaminated soil and ground water.  This presentation will discuss the planning, design, and construction of this project and the challenges presented by a variety of soil and ground water contamination sources, a high ground water table, and large diameter storm drainage pipes needed for this new “Gate Way” to Greenville.
