Introduction

Ridgeway Traffic Consulting, LLC (RTC) has completed a traffic and transportation review/assessment regarding a potential cross-section “road diet” modification for N. Main Street (SC 14) in Greer, South Carolina. 

Overview

A cross-section modification is being reviewed for N. Main Street in Greer, South Carolina between Bearden Avenue (northern limits of project) and West Church Street (southern limits of project). The proposed modification would convert/restripe the existing four-lane undivided cross-section to a three-lane cross section with one through lane in each direction separated by a center two-way left turn lane.
