COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Workers say they plan to finish restoration of nearly 500 feet of fence around the Governor’s Mansion in Columbia later this month.

Department of Administration spokeswoman Kelly Coakley told The State newspaper (https://bit.ly/2jXMSxX) that workers are adding a 3-foot brick foundation to the 3-foot tall fence on Lincoln Street to increase security.

But Coakley says the project will also keep the historical look of the cast-iron fence, first put up about 140 years ago and allow people walking and driving past to still be able to see the grounds and the governor’s residence.

Work on the $320,000 project began in November.
