Downtown Underground: Project update for week of May 1

Updated May 1, 2017

SPARTANBURG — Spartanburg Water continues work on waterline replacement on Daniel Morgan Avenue between Ezell Street and Henry Street the week of May 1, 2017. Work is scheduled at the intersection of West Main Street and Ezell Street through the week, requiring that the intersection be partially closed. Crews will not be working Monday, May 1, due to adverse weather conditions. Beginning Tuesday, May 2, the south side of the intersection at Daniel Morgan Avenue and Ezell Street will be partially closed. Access to all area businesses will remain open. During this week, the new watermain will be tied into existing lines. Working hours are from 8 a.m.-9 p.m.

Overall Project Status:

Approximately 375 linear feet of 12-inch water main has been installed on Daniel Morgan Avenue from Ezell Street to past the intersection with West Main Street. The line has been tested and disinfected. The project is proceeding well and is on track. Spartanburg Water continues to coordinate closely with the City of Spartanburg, the AC Hotel, and area businesses as many activities are taking place simultaneously in the area.
