Finally! Forty-three roadways throughout Richland County are soon to be repaved following last Tuesday’s County Transportation Committee approval of $7,500,000 in spending to improve approximately 36 miles of pavement.
Funding for this project will come from Richland County’s share of a $216 million budget surplus, which was divvied up by state lawmakers to each county for the purpose of improving and maintaining roadways.
With spring coming up, paving season is nearly here. James Brown, chairman of the Transportation Committee, has reported that the projects are “shovel ready” and will commence soon.
The following Richland roadways will be repaved:
- South Kilbourne Road from Live Oak Street to Rosewood Drive
- Rabbit Run from Trotter Road to Lower Richland Boulevard
- Old Two Notch Road from Bookman Road to Two Notch Road
- Firetower Road from near Kennerly Road to Western Lane
- Crane Church Road from Fairfield Road to Heyward Brockington Road
- Brickyard Road from Peeples Street to Lakeside Avenue
- Bookman Loop from Monticello Road to Monticello Road
We at George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers are glad that these much-needed improvements will finally be taking place to make our roadways smoother and safer. We help South Carolinians who are injured or disabled due to poor road conditions.
Drivers are advised that road closures will soon be in effect as improvements are underway. As always, please drive carefully!
