BEAUFORT, S.C. (Oct. 27, 2022) – Residents of Beaufort may notice work being done on two projects next week.
Demolition of the vacant Wendy’s building on Boundary Street along Battery Creek will begin next week. This will continue the development of Battery Saxton Park, the passive park along Battery Creek and Boundary Street that greets visitors to Beaufort and offers beautiful views of the marshes (see photo). The park was named after a Union Army gun battery established at that site in 1862 during the Civil War.
Also next week, dredging will begin on a creek that leads from Arthur Horne Park to Basin 2 in the Mossy Oaks neighborhood. The creek has a slight hump in it that has prevented drainage of water after heavy rains, and has led to some flooding in the Southside Park area.
