UGATA and our public partners Greenville County, have decided to stop pursuing an underpass in the existing culverts under Highway 253.
We want to thank Greenville County and Chairman Willis Meadows for their attention to this serious issue. They devoted a considerable amount of money to investigating this concern. Unfortunately, an extensive engineering study of the location found that consistent flooding would mean that this location is not suitable for an underpass. This is unfortunate news but UGATA is committed to only supporting high quality infrastructure projects to improve our community’s trails and greenways network.
UGATA will continue to focus on the improvement of this intersection moving forward.
We would like to thank the public for voicing their support for this project as well as Greenville County government for being so responsive to citizens’ requests.
