Waterfront Site Work to Close 2 Lanes of Blount Avenue

Posted: 07/28/2014
July 28, 2014 - Two westbound lanes of Blount Avenue between Gay Street and Chapman Highway will be closed through September 19 to accommodate demolition work at the former Baptist Hospital site.

Commuters will share the two eastbound lanes, with side-by-side lanes of eastbound and westbound traffic.

JW Demolition, which is doing the South Waterfront site preparation work, applied for the traffic control permit.

Blanchard & Calhoun Commercial Corp. of Augusta, Ga., has announced plans to transform the 23-acre now-vacant site into a $165 million mixed-use development that may include a hotel, apartments and retail space.
