Columbia, SC – Oct. 23, 2019 – The City of Columbia finalized a contract yesterday to repair the section of Trenholm Road damaged last week by a main line break. Work began at 8:00 am this morning with a target of re-opening Trenholm Road on Nov. 1, depending on weather.
Columbia Water experienced a 16-inch water main line break the evening of Oct. 14, causing extensive damage to Trenholm Road. While the water line was fixed by the next day, erosion caused by flowing water heavily deteriorated the pavement and underlying base.
Trenholm Road will be closed from Dean Hall Lane to Saramont Road until repairs are complete. Drivers who need to go through that area should consider an alternate route. The city has placed detour signs in the area to help reroute drivers.
Columbia Water apologizes for any inconvenience that this may cause to our customers. Questions or concerns regarding this traffic advisory can be made to our Customer Care Center at 803.545.3300.
