SCANA to Start Cleanup of Former Bus Barn Property in Columbia

By
– The State

SCANA Corp. next month will start cleanup of one of the most prized tracts of developable land in Columbia – the old bus barn lot at Huger and Hampton streets.

Over the next four to six months, workers will haul out 55,000 to 65,000 tons of dirt and demolition debris from the 5.8-acre lot. The project is expected to cost a little more than $6 million.

Up to 20 percent of the soil is highly contaminated because the area was first developed in 1902 as an SCE&G manufactured gas plant – a time when Huger Street was a dirt road and coal gas lit city streets.
