Center Street Improvements To Be Completed In Spring

The next phase of Downtown Goldsboro renovations is on schedule.

Once completed, Phase III of the streetscape work will essentially match Center Street from Spruce to Elm streets with the facelift already given to Center Street from Spruce north to Ash Street.

Downtown Goldsboro Development Director Julie Metz says this round of work also includes adding “The Hub” to the corner of Center and Chestnut streets.

Metz says according to the plan, the city hopes to attract a developer to build medium-density residential housing on the 400 block of S. Center Street.

This phase also includes adding wayfinding signage across the city.

Since 2013, the City of Goldsboro has been utilizing multi-million dollar TIGER Grants to rehabilitate the Center Street area.

Metz says the project that has been a boon for the downtown, attracting dozens of new businesses to the once neglected area.

Phase III of the Center Street streetscape project is expected to be completed by the end of May of 2020.

T.A. Loving Crews construct “The Hub” at the corner of Center and Chestnut streets.

S. Center Street is closed between Spruce and Elm streets as the next phase of streetscape work is completed.
