Downtown Underground: Infrastructure rehabilitation project focuses on replacing aging pipe to support new growth

Project includes sections of West Main Street and Daniel Morgan Avenue

Update Monday, April 24: Spartanburg Water continues work on the waterline replacement on Daniel Morgan Avenue between Ezell Street and Henry Street the week of Monday, April 24, requiring partial closure of the Daniel Morgan Avenue and Ezell Street intersection. Work is scheduled from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. During this time, the new water main will be tied into existing waterlines.

The water line work and subsequent streetscape improvements at the intersection of West Main and Daniel Morgan Avenue will require that the intersection remain closed through most of the month of April. However, downtown businesses remain open and continue to have parking access during the waterline replacement project.

To continue providing you with quality and consistent service, Spartanburg Water is rehabilitating and replacing sections of water line in the downtown Spartanburg area as part of a multi-phased project. This ongoing effort to strengthen the infrastructure includes sections of West Main Street from Forest Street to Daniel Morgan Avenue, as well as Daniel Morgan Avenue from Ezell Street to Henry Street.

The water lines in this area are aging and rehabilitating or replacing them with new, modern materials will reduce the maintenance cost required to keep them in service and improve fire protection.  It will also reduce the inconvenience to you and your neighbors from line breaks, disruptions in service, and crews working in the area.    

Work will be necessary in roadways. However, our team makes every effort to minimize impact to traffic by keeping the construction confined to one lane as much as possible. In areas where it is necessary to close sections of the roadway to allow for construction activities, updates and detour plans will be provided. Our goal is to complete the work as safely and efficiently as possible, while also reducing impacts to individual water service and local traffic to the extent possible.

The work on West Main Street is expected to take approximately three to four months to complete, and the work on Daniel Morgan Avenue is anticipated to take approximately six months to complete. The schedules are subject to change depending on weather conditions.
