CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - For more than a century, walking along Charleston's Battery has been as much a part of life as the city's pastel buildings, she crab soup and plodding carriage horses. Now the promenade looking out over Charleston Harbor is getting a much-needed makeover.

The first phase of the multi-year, multi-million dollar project begins next month with $2.7 million in renovations to the curve in the Battery at the tip of the Charleston peninsula. Other sections of the Battery, which is more than a mile long, will be renovated in the future.

It's the latest in an ongoing series of projects renovating city buildings and parks. In past decade, almost $200 million worth of such projects have been completed or undertaken.
