The waterline work scheduled for downtown Trade Street for the next six weeks.


Greer Commission of Public Works (CPW) is continuing its work to replace the existing waterlines along Trade Street between the 100 through 300 blocks.

The work is part of City of Greer’s streetscape project that will create a shared street concept for downtown Greer.

Portions of Trade Street impacted by the construction activity will be closed to vehicle traffic during work hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

Pedestrian traffic will remain open however four parking spaces, that will move with the work, will be used for construction vehicles during the duration of the work.

The trenched areas worked for any given day will be backfilled/compacted with crusher run gravel and/or covered by steel plate so that vehicles may freely use the road during non-construction hours.

CPW crews and its contractor, Howard Construction, began performing preliminary work Tuesday related to the upcoming waterline work. Additionally, uniformed CPW employees will be contacting business owners to access the buildings basements for future water line work.

No boil water advisories or water pressure issues are expected for businesses or residents due to the construction.

CPW crews may be in the area for the next six weeks.
