TIGER BOULEVARD RETAINING WALL SLOPE REMEDIATION PROJECT
Public Notice June, 10,2015
CONSTRUCTION ON THE TIGER BOULEVARD RETAINING WALL SLOPE REMEDIATION PROJECT BEGINS TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 2015.
The City of Clemson will begin work on the Tiger Boulevard Retaining Wall Tuesday, June 16, 2015. The purpose of this project is to secure the slope between Tiger Boulevard and Reid Street. Intermittent lane closures will occur throughout the duration of the project. Lane closures will be limited to the eastbound right lane of Tiger Boulevard adjacent to Reid Street. SCDOT will be working with the City to eliminate storm water runoff from Reid Street that has been contributing to the erosion of the slope. This will be done by resurfacing a section of Reid Street and installing new storm water infrastructure.
The project is anticipated to take 90 days to complete. No work will be performed July 3-4, 2015.
