Rock Hill Galleria fountains to be shut down during repair project

Contractors will soon begin some repair work on the decorative brick fountains in front of the Rock Hill Galleria entrance on Dave Lyle Boulevard.

The city of Rock Hill has hired a construction firm to start the project over the next several weeks. City officials say the repairs will cost about $4,600.

Crews will install tile around a water line feeding the foundations. For about one week, all water in the fountains will be drained while repairs are made.

The city built the fountains about five years ago to improve the look of the area around Dave Lyle Boulevard and Interstate 77. The improvements were part of an overall beautification project for the mall and Manchester Village commercial areas.

The upcoming tiling project will add tiles to an area of the fountains where none were originally installed, said Marty Burr of Rock Hill’s purchasing office.
