FLORENCE — There is one benefit to the lack of traffic on city streets as residents do their part to protect each other through self-quarantine: road-related projects can continue with little impact on motorists.

Florence Gas and Water Department Manager Mike Doyle said projects that have been planned for include the one on Alabama Street between Court and Pine streets.

That section of street is closed to traffic while a contractor's crew replace a manhole and some lines that go as deep as 20 feet. The work is about a $1.5 million project

Doyle said there are other areas that need the same type work. Projects like this, overall for the city, is an approximately $67 million investment that will take place over several years.
