Camden to improve I-20, industrial park infrastructure
Placeholder Image
After years of being on the back burner, the city of Camden is ready to bank on the future of another of town: the I-20/U.S. 521 interchange area and two nearby industrial parks. Despite continued economic doldrums, Camden City Council is optimistic enough that it appears ready to authorize perhaps as much as $2.03 million to improve water and sewer lines and pump stations to entice industries and smaller businesses to come here. The project, if ultimately approved by council, would work in three phases: improvements to the “Exxon” pump station near I-20 on South Broad Street (U.S. 521); a portion of the city’s sewer system along Black River Road; and looping a water line, also along Black River Road, to a water tank at Steeplechase Industrial Park.
