Renovations to the West Street Plaza entrance of Beaufort's Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park are substantially completed and pedestrians are welcome, the city announced Friday.
"It's a beautiful project that adds a lot to the downtown streetscape," city manager Bill Prokop said in a news release. "The new design is cleaner, brighter and certainly a lot safer with the new brick pavers instead of the uneven concrete."
Some minor details on the project will be addressed in coming weeks, along with minor cleanup.
The plaza connects Bay Street to the park. In recent years, tree roots lifted up sections of tabby sidewalk along the plaza, creating potential tripping hazards. Trees and sidewalk were removed and replaced with brick pavers, concrete, granite cobbles and 10 Sabal palms, among other features.
