CALHOUN DISTRICT STREETSCAPE PLAN
Seamon-Whiteside & Associates, Inc. of Greenville, South Carolina are providing the preliminary planning design for streetscape improvements for the Old Calhoun District of the City of Clemson.
In November 2014, Clemson officials and architects from Seamon-Whiteside lead Calhoun residents on a walking tour of the historic area that is scheduled for improvements in 2015.
On December 4, 2014 a planning meeting was held in the Community Room at City Hall for a presentation of initial design concepts by Seamon-Whiteside and to receive input from interested residents.

BERKELEY DRIVE PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE PROJECT
The City of Clemson continues to work on our plans for roadway and pedestrian improvements along Berkeley Drive extending from the intersection of Frontage Road south of US 123 to the Clemson Elementary School drive opposite of Karen Drive to the north of US 123. The proposed improvements include the construction of a multiple-use path along the east side of Berkeley Drive and a new pedestrian bridge over US 123.
The City contracted with Florence and Hutcheson to perform engineering services for the project. Florence and Hutcheson has the finished design of the project and conducted several Public Information Meetings along the way. Final design approval from SCDOT is anticipated in January of 2012. The design portion of the project was funded by the Pickens County “C” Funds Committee. The City will be seeking grant funding in 2012 to construct the improvements. The estimated cost is $1.16M. Actual construction dates will depend on funding.
