North Augusta, SC (WJBF) – According to North Augusta City Administrator Todd Glover, timbering near the area where Project Jackson is being developed may cause delays for your commute.
Glover tells us that the private owner of the land along the site where Project Jackson is proposed will be timbering the land in the coming week.
The City of North Augusta will be erecting silt fencing and monitoring the project to ensure that the 30-foot buffers required around the Brick Ponds will be maintained. The City and the developer have worked to identify specimen trees that will be pre-identified and protected. The majority of the trees in the area are Hackberry trees that are diseased or dying. Trees that are taken down around the Greeneway will be replaced by the City with healthier trees.
Glover says that the erection of the silt fencing and timbering will cause the temporary closures of Railroad Avenue, Center Street below the North Augusta Municipal Building, and the Greeneway, over the next week from 7:00 a.m. to approximately 5:30 p.m. daily beginning on Friday, March 4th
This activity does not indicate the beginning of construction or final approval of Project Jackson by the North Augusta City Council, according to Glover.
