WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration has awarded a $200,000 grant to Ware Shoals for sewer and transportation improvements. The funds will be used to upgrade the sewer and transportation infrastructure along a five mile corridor of Highway 25.
