COLUMBIA — A group of state, county and city elected officials broke ground on the Scott Boulevard expansion project Friday morning.
Scott Boulevard will be expanded to four lanes plus a center median.
The construction was identified as a 2005 ballot issue project and will
cost $16.1 million. The estimated completion date is fall or summer of 2010.
Ceremonial shovels are lined up at the corner of Scott Boulevard and Chapel Hill Road before Friday's groundbreaking.
