The City of Greenville owns and maintains approximately 260 centerline miles of streets and a primary responsibility of the Engineering Division is managing the City's Pavement Management Program, which includes street resurfacing, restriping and maintenance treatments.


The City of Greenville’s annual street resurfacing program will start in August 2023, with 14.75 miles of roadway scheduled to be resurfaced. Approximately 13 miles of City-owned streets and approximately 1.75 miles of SCDOT-owned streets will be resurfaced through the Greenville Legislative Delegation Transportation Committee's (GLDTC) Municipal Match Resurfacing Program and the Neighborhood Infrastructure Bond.  

The GLDTC provides a 50-50 match of funding from local municipalities. The City has allocated $6 million from its $32 million Neighborhood Infrastructure Bond (NIB) and approximately $1.1 million from the General Fund, which GLDTC will match for a total of approximately $14.2 million.
