Spartanburg's Stimulus Projects

4 posts in this topic

To date I have not heard much of anything about the Upstate's cities in terms of what they are requesting for funding via the infrastructure/stimulus bill. I did, however, come across this info from Transportation for America. Its part of a larger list of bicycle and pedestrian projects that Spartanburg is requesting. On this list, Spartanburg County and Bluffton are the only entities that submitted anything. I would not take this to be a comprehensive list for Spartanburg, or assume that Spartanburg and other cities in South Carolina have not submitted projects via other lists. Hopefully we'll learn more information about other projects over time.


Chesnee Ped and Elder Ready Community $121,800


Streetscape / Sidewalks etc $384,210


Gateway Project $184,500


Streetscape / Bike Lanes $134,784

Spartanburg County

Country Club Rd paved shoulders $5,200,000

Copperline Drive Multi-Use Path $150,000

Tyger River Bridge Connection $186,000

Sidewalk repair $472,000

According to my understanding, projects submitted to this list have to be ready to bulid or very close to it, so even if these aren't funded, its possible we could see these happen at some point in the future.

  • Midtowne Heights and Forest Park infrastructure improvements

  • Local storm drain projects

  • Beaumont Mill sewer

  • Energy-efficiency projects, such as a new city hall, fire stations, parking garages, recreation centers and street lighting

  • Arkwright landfill cleanup

        I was very excited to see this list. I hope that the streetscapes are funded and the Beaumont sewer system... that needs a lot of work from what I understand. I also hope that the "other streetscapes" includes East Main St.

Has anyone seen anything about what stimulus projects may get funded?

The HJ article about RJ Rockers says that they discussed this at Monday's council meeting, but nothing was published that I could see as to what projects they discussed.
