Furman College Way will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning Monday, and will remain closed for the duration of the project. The Swamp Rabbit Trail will remain open and pedestrian access will be maintained in the area of construction provided there are no safety concerns.

University Street will be one-way only from Augusta Street towards Howe Street. This lane closure will remain in place overnight and on the weekends.

The first phase of the project requires blasting near the roundabout on University Street to remove granite from the proposed trench for the new wastewater line. 

Blasting will be performed take place between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Controlled Blasting, Inc. Will do that work which is expected to take up to two weeks.

An audible warning signal will be sounded before each blast. Police officers and Fire Department will be on-site during blasting.
