Columbia moves forward on arts district streetscape
The city of Columbia has contracted with Adams Contracting for a streetscape project on a portion of South Garden Street to serve as a gateway welcoming visitors to the Columbia Arts District. The roadway features both the Columbia Arts District and Columbia Fire and Rescue Mural as well as takes drivers along several businesses in the area. Ragan Smith and Associations will oversee the project’s initial bidding process, provide construction management, site inspections, and engineering support. The road will become a one-way street that will allow for the enhancement of its sidewalk, increase opportunities for parking spaces, and allow for public space areas. Areas for public art to be displayed will also be included.
