Project Updates

Work on the Clayton Street Improvements Project continues with the installation of new electrical conduit “duct banks” in the corridor.  These conduits will be used for wiring for street lighting, fiber optic cabling, downtown cameras, traffic and pedestrian signals, and other data and electrical needs.  Spare conduits are also being installed for future needs as they may arise.  Duct bank istlalation is complete.   

The streetscape portion of the work is mostly complete to Jackson Street on both sides  Clayton Street, Wall Street, and on the west side of South Jackson Street down to West Broad Street.  Work has also progressed on the north side of Clayton Street towards Thomas Street.  As the streetscape efforts progresses, Astra will coordinate necessary sidewalk closures in the area and provide pedestrian ramps or bridges to allow continued access to businesses.
