Lane closures possible as new sewer lines installed

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

SPARTANBURG— As part of Spartanburg Water’s ongoing campaign to replace aging pipes with newer, more durable materials, the sewer lines located in the Drayton area, on Ansel Street, between Carney Street and Drayton Road, and on Calvert Street, between Carney and Floyd Streets, will be rehabilitated during February. Work is scheduled to begin Tuesday, January 31, and is expected to be completed in approximately one month. The schedule is subject to change due to winter weather conditions.

  • Crews will work weekdays, 8 am to 5 p.m. Some sections of the parking areas of the Drayton Mills Lofts located between Calvert St. and Ansel St. will be cordoned off to allow workers to perform activities for this project.
  • Residents may call the Spartanburg Water Information Hotline at 864-580-2055 for project updates. This hotline will be updated periodically with any changes to the project.
