The new complex off Vector Avenue will be a multibuilding campus that aims to streamline the Public Works Department’s functions. It will sit on a 38-acre campus in a central location in the city.
This will replace the city’s current public works facility, built in the 1970s, which sits on 6 acres.
North Charleston City Council approved the bond issuance to fund the construction of the facility in June.
With design and planning completed and initial site work underway, building construction is set to begin. The city will hold a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday at 10 a.m.
The city plans to move its public works operations by the end of 2014.
