December 2, 2020
A Wednesday morning Zoom meeting with all three general contractors from downtown construction projects provided a more defined view of the overall schedule for the remainder of 2020 and into the new year.
The Municipal Parking Deck may appear to be largely finished but work continues inside the structure. Greer CPW will connect permanent power to the structure next week. Triangle Construction is now preparing to pour curb and gutter and installing the elevator. It expects to complete that work this month. Anticipated work in January includes paving, external concrete work, striping and landscaping. Punch list items are planned for February, although work on Jason St. will determine the facility’s actual opening date.
Pinkerton & Laws Construction will continue its work on the exterior of the adjacent Hampton Inn through February. Interior work is also underway.
A wider scale of work is being undertaken by Sossamon Construction, which is working on the utility and streetscape improvements included in Phase Two of the CenterG project. That schedule includes work on Cannon St. and Jason St. Curb and gutter installation and streetlight conduit and foundation installation is underway on Cannon St. and will be completed in mid-January, weather permitting. Sidewalk installation will commence in mid-December and run through January.
Identical work will be done on Jason St. in December and then in April/May. The street remains closed to vehicles during construction.
Sidewalk, curb and gutter will begin on N. Main St. the first week of January and will continue into the spring, when the S.C. Department of Transportation allows asphalt paving to resume. Cannon St., Jason St. and N. Main St. (south of Arlington Ave.) are scheduled for repaving.
All schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather and unforeseen issues.
