COLUMBIA (WACH) --- The Universty of South Carolina is making big changes to Assembly Street.
The Universty will spend millions of dollars renovating the busy road between Pendelton and Blossom Streets.
Universty spokesperson Wes Hickman says the construction will start next week and will include the widening of sidewalks and medians.
Once the construction is complete there will be no parking along the medians and fences will be put up to prevent jay walking.
Hickman says when the new school of business opens, they antcipate more than 12,000 pedestrains crossing Assembley Street daily.
The construction will be complete before next year's fall semester starts.
