04 Jun Boundary Street Project Complete
The City of Beaufort has announced that the Boundary Street Project is being completed on time and has planned a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on June 1st at 10am.
In a release on Thursday, the City said final asphalt is being laid for the $33 million Boundary Street Project and plans are underway for a celebratory ribbon-cutting to cap the two-year project being completed on schedule and on budget.
Local, state and federal leaders are being invited to the event, to be held at the corner of Boundary Street and Robert Smalls Parkway at Beaufort Plaza.
The Boundary Street Project is a $33 million federal, state, county, and City of Beaufort initiative that is just over one mile long, stretching from Neil Road to Sycamore Street at Beaufort City Hall. A major element of the project was removing overhead power and communications lines into an underground duct bank, reducing urban clutter while creating a safer environment for travel.
About 35 miles of overhead cables were relocated underground, drainage systems were upgraded, sidewalks were installed on both sides of the street, and new streetlights have been installed along with locally-sustainable landscaping. All these improvements have made for a remarkable entrance to the City of Beaufort, according to the release.
