The Greer Inland Port is working through its punch list as container traffic continues to become more frequent. There were a reported 1,000 containers on site Wednesday.

The South Carolina Port Authority has invested $50 million, which had groundbreaking on March 1 and opened for business on Oct. 15.  The nearly 100-acre site required a massive amount of grading – 950,000 cubic yards. There were 180,000 square yards – 40 acres – of concrete poured.

The 6-lane interchange canopy, security booth and striping and expansion cuts on the concrete remain to be completed.

Greer Commission of Public Works provides all utilities underground – water, electric, natural gas, waste water – and has two substations on site.

Signage on all highways entering the port has been posted on I-85, Brockmon McClimon, and Hwy. 80 / J. Verne Smith Parkway. Signage has also been posted on Wade Hampton Boulevard directing traffic to the Parkway and the entrance to the port.

The city of Greer has announced it will post signage steering truck traffic away from the inner city.
