Construction continues to move forward along S.C. Highway 93 as workers upgrade underground utilities and pipes to serve the main campus. Toward that end, Facilities will extend the existing barricades along Highway 93 to Centennial Boulevard beginning today (Monday, Jan. 14). Access to Williamson Road will remain available until Tuesday (Jan. 15), when workers will place barricades at the Williamson Road/Highway 93 intersection, which will block access to Williamson Road from Highway 93.
Street parking on Williamson Road will remain available and the gravel lot parking by the West Energy Plant will continue to be available.
Officials expect the Williamson Road/Highway 93 intersection to reopen Jan. 25.
Clemson University is doing more work on Highway 93 from Palmetto Smokehouse to the Esso Club. This will involve multiple lane closures and will include some periods of complete closure. The work will continue into Spring. The University recently updated their blog which outlines the proposed work schedule and how it will impact those traversing that section of Highway 93. This blog will be routinely updated as more information is available. You can view the blog by using the link below. Clemson University owns this section of roadway and the City has little to no influence on their decisions. We are asking for their cooperation in helping to keep our citizens informed. Any concerns related to the impact of this work should be directed to the University.
