Traffic Advisory: Downtown Underground project update for week of August 7

SPARTANBURG — Spartanburg Water crews will continue working the week of August 7 on the water line replacement on Daniel Morgan Avenue between Ezell Street and Henry Street. The southbound lane of traffic on South Daniel Morgan Avenue past the intersection with Harris Place extending to Henry Street will be closed beginning Tuesday August 8, and detoured onto Harris Place and Spring Street as crews make necessary service reconnections. The lane will be re-opened on Friday, August 11. Access to area businesses will be maintained and appropriate traffic control will be in place.

The rehabilitation of the 10-inch water main on West Main Street will also continue this week. Lane closures for westbound traffic on West Main Street from the intersection of St. John Street continuing toward Forest Street will require that traffic be diverted toward the center/turn lane from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Traffic control measures will be in place to re-direct traffic and maintain traffic flow. Access to area businesses will be maintained. 

The Greenville Branch sewer interceptor rehabilitation project, the installation of 11,000 feet of sewer line that runs parallel to Greenville Branch Creek, also continues this week. The project spans from the Northside area, crosses sections of downtown Spartanburg and ends on Crescent Avenue. No traffic impacts are anticipated this week.
