Constructing a gateway

ReVision Florence Gateway Monuments added to Maple Street

Sept. 12, 2020 — The installation of one of the main features of the ReVision Florence project began this week as the Old Town Gateway Monument structure was completed.

The project has taken years to come to fruition and the cost of the gateway is more than $425,000 to this point.

David Dougherty, the designer working with MurraySmith Engineers and the City of Florence on the project, said he was pleased with the first stages of the install.

“It seems to be going well up to this point,” he said on Thursday. “We are working on the lighting inside the columns.”

Dougherty said crews planned on having the gateway ready for a test of the lighting Friday night.
