COLUMBIA, S.C. — The City of Columbia and Columbia Water wants to alert drivers that a portion of Blanding Street in downtown will be closed for sewer repair and upgrades, beginning Wednesday, September 1.

Columbia Water officials expect the work to take about a week to complete. In the meantime, all lanes of the 1100 block of Blanding -- between Main and Assembly streets -- will be closed through September 8.

The parking garage for Richland County Courthouse and Sidney Park CME Church are located in the 1100 block of Blanding. Robert Yanity, Utility Communications Manager at Columbia Water, said the parking garage should not close the parking garage.
