CHARLESTON, South Carolina — Work is beginning on a $4 million project to renovate Colonial Lake, one of Charleston's most-photographed locations.

Crews begin work Monday on the yearlong project that will require the park and lake on the western edge of the Charleston peninsula to be closed for a year.

The lake is often featured in paintings and photographs of Charleston.

As part of the project, new granite facing will be placed along the shore of the lake. New trails and paths will also be created, and new pipes will be installed to improve the water quality in the lake that connects to the Ashley River.

This project is a partnership between the city, the Charleston Parks Conservancy and the Historic Charleston Foundation.
