Charleston County Government will host a public meeting on Monday, May 20th, to gather public comments and discuss preliminary design alternatives for "Main Road Segment A: US 17 and Main Road Intersection & Main Road Improvements - Bees Ferry to River Road."
The meeting is scheduled from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. in the St. John’s High School cafeteria, 1518 Main Road, in Johns Island, SC.
The meeting will be drop-in format, with staff available at display stations to answer questions. Attendees will have the opportunity to provide comments on each of the proposed alternatives, and the project team will use the input to help shape the future of this project. There will be no formal presentation.
Located in one of Charleston County’s fastest-growing areas on and near Johns Island, US 17 & Main Road is critical for accommodating increased traffic, reducing congestion, providing safe options for bicyclists and pedestrians, and mitigating flooding issues.
Exhibits presented at the public meeting will be posted on the website May 21, as well as an online public comment form for those unable to attend the meeting. The Project Team will accept public comments for 30 days, until June 19, 2019.
Anyone with questions about the project can call Charleston County’s Transportation Development Department at (843) 202-6140.
