Bicycle Lanes in West Greenville

The Greenville Local Development Corporation has provided Community Development with funding to continue economic development efforts in West Greenville. The first step of the project, which will include streetscape improvements along Birnie and Queen streets, was to establish a dedicated bicycle lane on Queen Street. Striping for the bike lane is complete and City traffic engineers will install bicycle emblems in the lane, along with bicycle sharrows along Birnie Street to remind drivers to share the road with neighborhood cyclists. 

The bicycle lanes are designed to provide a safer environment for cyclists and pedestrians and to provide connections between neighborhoods and the Swamp Rabbit Trail, as recommended in the City’s Bicycle Master Plan. Bicycle lanes and pavement markings have also been shown to help reduce traffic speeds.

With the new bicycle lanes, parking is no longer permitted on Queen Street. As a result, cars parked on Queen Street will be ticketed, and if not moved within 48 hours, may be towed at the owner's expense.

You can apply for the Homestead Exemption at any time of the year at the Greenville County Office of Real Property Services, located in Suite 100 at County Square (301 University Ridge).
