Introducing the new State Fairgrounds parking area

With plenty of time to spare before football season draws hordes of Gamecock fans to the Williams Brice Stadium, my company wrapped up our work on rebuilding the State Fairgrounds parking area.

Those who have suffered through tailgating in a boggy parking lot will find assurance that these experiences will largely become a thing of the past, as well as a parking area which is far more aesthetically appealing that the empty open lot.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the innovative approach to handling stormwater. While the roadways were paved, the spaces were left grassed to help reduce runoff. In addition, an underwater stormwater retainage system - the largest of its kind in South Carolina - was put in place. Improved lighting will make things easier and safer for people parking there.

This project joins our portfolio of prominent Midlands projects, including the Lake Carolina and Lake Frances residential developments, as well as interchanges at Peach Road in Fairfield County and Sunset Boulevard in Lexington County, as well as the final phase of Clemson Road, near I-77.

You can learn more by visiting the project website, as well as watching a video on The State's website.
