After a month of delays, crews begin resurfacing Spring, Cannon streets

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A process of resurfacing of Spring and Cannon Streets in downtown Charleston began Monday, months after the original planned start date.

Work was set for December, but it got delayed until late January. By then, as the milling process began, a contractor convinced the city it would be wise to wait until early Spring.

The resurfacing is expected to last six days, according to city officials.

One lane of eastbound traffic on Cannon and one lane of westbound traffic on Spring will remain open. Traffic will be diverted into the parking lanes, which means parking will not be allowed on the streets during the construction.

The work will take place during daylight hours beginning at 7 a.m. The construction schedule can be found below:

  • Monday:
    • No parking on Spring Street.
