Downtown Greer’s aging infrastructure, said to be more than a 100-years-old in places, will get an overhaul beginning in 2017. Downtown streets will also get new paving.
The project’s overall cost is estimated at $4 - 4.5 million. That does not include a $1.031 million, 75/25 matching grant, awarded Greer from the Greenville Legislation Delegation Transportation.
Quarterback Trey Houston threw for four touchdowns and Drew Williams ran for two more scores as Greer won its fourth straight football game, beating Travelers Rest, 55-21, at Dooley Field Friday night.
It was homecoming for the No. 8 ranked Class AAAA Yellow Jackets and Travelers Rest was the perfect guest. Greer High School classes of 1961 and 1964 were honored.
It was both teams’ Region II opening game.
Greer accumulated 512 total yards and TR had 304 yards.
The 10th annual Benson OctoberFAST benefitting Greer Community Ministries is Saturday, at Greer First Baptist Church, 201 W. Poinsett Street.
