The Richland County Neighborhood Improvement Program and Richland County Council are beaming to announce the completion of a street lighting installation project within the Broad River Road Corridor and Community Master Plan area. This agreement with SCE&G was signed in November 2012, to enhance public safety along Broad River Road.
SCE&G conducted a lighting survey of the corridor to assess where lighting improvements needed to be made in order to eliminate dark spots that create public safety concerns. Fifty-three(53) lights were installed from Riverhill Road to Harbison Boulevard. Thirty-three(33) lights fall inside the Richland County municipal boundary and twenty(20) lights fall inside the City of Columbia municipal boundary. Both parties are responsible for the lights within their jurisdictions and have appropriate contracts with SCE&G.
The lights are being funded by the Richland County Neighborhood Improvement Program. This program was established by County Council in 2004 to coordinate and fund neighborhood master plans and improvement projects within those areas of Richland County. The Richland County Neighborhood Improvement Program Office is a partnership between county government and neighborhood organizations.
