TRAVELERS REST, S.C. — Construction has begun on the new Travelers Rest city hall complex adjoining Trailblazer Park and the fire station on Trailblazer Drive.
Slated to cost an estimated $6 million, the approximately 17,000-square-foot complex includes city government offices, municipal court, council chambers, the police station, a public works building, and a visitor's center area.
Designed by Greenville-based DP3 Architects and being built by general contracting firm Harper Corporation, construction is expected to take approximately nine months, according to outgoing Travelers Rest City Administrator Dianna Gracely.

First identified as a governmental "top priority" in March 2016, officials said the current city hall facility on State Park Road is dated and in need of expansion. Following preliminary space planning sessions, officials suggested building at the Trailblazer Park location would be an optimal solution, "streamlining the process for building permitting, business licensing and [city] administration" with all of the cities services located in one location.
