Storm water project to cause temporary road closures
DARLINGTON – Several temporary road closures will come to the West side of Darlington as the West Darlington Storm Water Project continues to move forward.
Landsdown Earth and Pipe will add a second crew this week to begin work at the intersection of Anhow and Coker Streets and working out from there and along Chalmers Street. These roads may be temporarily closed during the day but not overnight for approximately two to four weeks.
The contractor also plans to put a temporary patch on the section of Pearl Street that was removed to install storm water pipes and catch basins last week before race activities Labor Day weekend. The final asphalt will be completed in the later stages of the project.
Additionally, as crews follow the storm drain path, crews will have to close West Broad Street between Milling and Washington Streets. Expect delays and detours in that area for about four weeks once work commences.
The $2.75 million project combines a South Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority (RIA) Grant $445,000 and funds from a storm water bond to renovate parts of the city’s storm water drainage system. The project area affects the West side of town stretching from Swift Creek and Fleming Street to West Broad and Chalmers Street. It includes the removal of 2,452 linear feet of existing pipe, removal and replacement of 609 linear feet of roadway and one bridge, the clearing 2.52 acres, the installation of 21 catch basins, the replacement of one fire hydrant, the replacement of 300 linear feet of gravity sewer, and the installation of 5,738 linear feet of pipe ranging in width from 15 inches to 60 inches.
