The Closing of South Broad Street
We will be looking for detours; for trees to be cut down (not repaving, yet) W- MORE INFO.
Tree-cutting along South Broad St. in Clinton is on-go with the posting today (June 10) of Road Closing signs. From June 17 to June 20, 7 am to 7 pm, the street will be closed, and Hwy 72-56 traffic through Clinton will be re-routed. The SC DOT (Department of Transportation) maintenance department posted the street-closing. Trees along South Broad St. have been examined by a state arborist to determine their future viability.
This street will be re-paved this summer, and the long-awaited repaving work comes after the City of Clinton accomplished a very extensive replacement of water and sewer lines - some of the oldest in the city - along the South Broad Street corridor. Rogers Group has the re=paving contract, and they are working in Anderson now, with Clinton and Hwy 221 in Laurens next on their schedule. The South Broad Street re-paving contract has a Nov. 30th completion date.
Motorists are reminded, S. Broad is the "front entrance" of Presbyterian College, Thornwell Home for Children and First Baptist Church.
The City of Clinton has posted this notice: "Starting June 17th, S. Broad St. will be closed between the hurs of 7am-7pm. This will last until June 20th. SC DOT will be removing trees along this road due to the State Forestry Commission declaring these trees dangerous and hazardous. Please be mindful of any workers and thank you for your patience!
