Improvements at River Road and Maybank Highway Intersection
Charleston County will be making intersection improvements at River and Maybank to include dual left turn lanes from River (north side) to Maybank heading to James Island with a merge in front of Pinnacle Financial.
Update: Permitting is complete and construction funding approval is pending. Anticipated construction start is October.
Feasibility Study to Make Maybank Reversible
Charleston County is in the process of studying whether or not the three-lane section of Maybank Highway can be reversed to the Stono Bridge at peak times.
Update: The County received the feasibility study, which found lane reversible would be effective but could conflict with the pitchfork roads, if they proceed. The City and County are reviewing the completed report.
Update: The Army Corps of Engineers sent a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to the County for review, plans are to select a contractor in September with construction to start in November of this year.
Installation of a traffic light at Fenwick Alle for improved safety is part of the Northern Pitchfork project: estimated installation in May 2020. Decorative street lighting for the area is anticipated in November 2020 due to a lengthy manufacturing schedule.
No update. County has no identified source of funding.
Safety Related Projects
Continuing: The Department of Transportation is evaluating Main Road trees to determine they have affected the paved road and could pose potential safety issues.
