Yes, for the affected section of Boundary Street, overhead utility lines will be moved below ground.
To improve safety and the appearance of this main entry to Beaufort, utility companies agreed in the Summer of 2014 to move their various lines and cables from overhead poles into an underground “duct bank." This applies to the area between Neil Road and the City Hall/Beaufort County Government Complex at Ribaut Road. The poles will be removed as well.
The end result will be a safer road for drivers, a more attractive entrance to the City of Beaufort, and a lower chance of utility lines being knocked down by storms.
