The City of Greenville has launched a stream bank restoration project at the top of the Reedy River Falls in downtown.

Crews are using a machine to place boulders along the Reedy River bank to help prevent erosion and create a safer slope between the river and sidewalk, according to a press release.

The project, which is expected to take a week, has been approved by the Army Corps of Engineers and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

A section of the Swamp Rabbit Trail along the river will be closed periodically throughout the project. Pedestrians and cyclists will have to use a small detour.
