GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A plan has been proposed to turn a portion of Greene Street in downtown Greensboro from one-way to two-way traffic.

The plan called the "Greene Street 2-way Conversion" would let people drive both northbound and southbound from Bellmeade Street to West Washington Street.

Adam Fischer, director of transportation for the City of Greensboro, said that two lanes will run southbound traffic and one would run northbound if the conversion happens.

"We would have to remark and repave the street, as well as add additional traffic signals," Fischer said.

In addition to more traffic signals, the signs on all three parking decks on Greene Street would have to change. The project is estimated to cost $500,000, and voters will have to pass a bond referendum.

Fischer stated the project would take at least six months to complete. The public can follow the city's plans for Greene Street on its website. Mail-in ideas will be accepted through May 14.

Greensboro city councilmembers are expected to vote on the Greene Street project by the end of summer.
