A $121 million undertaking to minimize congestion on Woodruff Street could be in jeopardy as Greenville County Council’s finance committee is established to vote on its funding. 

Council Chairman Willis Meadows agreed to a motion made by Councilman Stan Tzouvelekas at the County Council assembly Tuesday night to ship the Woodruff Road Congestion Aid venture to the council’s finance committee.

That’s a transfer that could get rid of the challenge solely, according to Councilman Butch Kirven.

The venture is the result of a study to alleviate targeted traffic congestion along Woodruff Street, in accordance to the condition Division of Transportation. It would provide a new minimal-entry, alternate, parallel route to Woodruff Road that extends from Verdae Boulevard to Smith Hines Street at the Woodruff Road intersection.

Neither Tzouvelekas nor Meadows indicated why they desired the project’s funding to be considered by the finance committee.
