Traffic Advisory: Downtown Underground project update for week of September 25

September 25, 2017

SPARTANBURG — Spartanburg Water crews will be completing the Daniel Morgan Avenue Rehabilitation project the week of September 25. Monday and Tuesday, September 25-26, crews will complete the final road patching at the intersection of South Daniel Morgan Avenue and West Henry Street.  A single lane closure of the outside westbound lane of West Henry Street just west of the intersection with South Daniel Morgan Avenue will be required. This work will be restricted to 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. each day to minimize traffic impacts.  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 from Forest Street to Daniel Morgan Avenue is complete. There will be no traffic impacts associated with this project. 

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. The turn lane onto St. John Street from the eastbound lane (heading toward downtown) of West Main Street will be shifted to accommodate this work.  Appropriate traffic control will be in place and traffic flow will be maintained.
