Train Trestle

The Blossom Street Train Trestle Beautification Project was completed in three phases:
Stripping and repainting of the buttresses on either side of the train tracks – Completed November 2016
Planting of new planters surrounding the entire train trestle, and irrigation installation – Completed April 2017
Pressure washing and painting of the steel overpass, followed by the installation of lettering reading “Five Points” on both sides – Completed July 2018.
With the completion of the final phase, the Five Points Association became the first group in South Carolina to complete a train trestle beautification; a project that would not have been possible without the generous support of Richland County and the City of Columbia.
