GREENWOOD - The city of Greenwood will showcase some $11 million in recently-complete projects designed to boost the quality of life in the Johnson County city. The new Surina Way connector is one part of the slate of downtown work and will be the focus of Tuesday's ribbon-cutting. Surina Way involves new sidewalks, decorative lighting, landscaping and a bioswale system that the city describes as a drainage innovation.

Additional projects complete this year include: the first phase of major Madison Ave. improvements, a 1.5-mile redesigned stretch of Emerson Ave., a Smith Valley Road and Madison Ave. roundabout, Main and Meridian streets intersection improvements and Greenwood Amphitheater and surrounding park space upgrades.

Tuesday's ceremony will include Mayor Mark Myers, Greenwood Public Library Director Cheryl Dobbs, Greenwood Public Schools Superintendent Kent DeKonick and other local leaders.
