Clemson Road water main break repairs will cost $500K

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Following a sizable water main break earlier this week, the emergency repair work on Clemson Road will cost about $500,000.

A water main burst this week near the Village at Sandhill in Northeast Columbia on Wednesday and caused portions of the road to sink and partially collapse near the Clemson Extension.

The break is now fixed, but parts of the road are still closed to drivers as the city works to rebuild. Crews will have two weeks to complete the project, so there will be lane closures at that time.

The name of the contractor working on this project was not released as of Friday.
