Bees Ferry Road Completion Ceremony

Bees Ferry Road Completion CeremonyThe December 9th ceremony celebrated the completion of the Bees Ferry Road Widening Project. The goal of the project was to improve traffic flow and safety, while remaining sensitive to the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists and other roadway users. The $49.5 million dollar project was requested by the City of Charleston and funded by the Charleston County Government's Transportation Sales Tax Program. Charleston County's Transportation Development staff managed the project in close coordination with the City of Charleston and the S.C. Department of Transportation.

Pavement Preservation Program

Pavement Preservation ProgramCharleston County Transportation Development staff has, and continues to explore cost effective innovative paving technologies and techniques in order to sustain a viable roadway system while adhering to annual budget parameters. The focus of our endeavors continues to be developing a system strategy to maintain our roads more efficiently. In the spring of 2013, Charleston County worked with Wright Asphalt Products and local contractor, Truluck Construction to complete the first fog seal pilot project in Charleston County. The project was a big success in numerous ways as the treatment was the right treatment, on the right road, at the right time and provided a great learning opportunity for both Charleston County staff and our local contractor. Charleston County is always looking to expand the local construction industry, and by involving a local contractor in this project, we believed this would open the doors for future expansion. The video showcases our continued use of the fog seal; this time on Old Jacksonboro Road in Ravenel. Charleston County worked with Southeast Emulsions on this round of fog seal and we will continue to test other options to find out what seal works best for our community.

The project proposes to improve Harbor View Road between North Shore Drive and Fort Johnson Road (2.1 miles) by providing a center two-way left-turn lane between North Shore Drive and Affirmation Boulevard, adding right turn lanes at major intersections, traffic signals at Fort Sumter Drive and Mikell Drive, a roundabout at the intersection with Fort Johnson Road, and adding pedestrian and bicycle facilities for the length of the project. The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow and safety on Harbor View Road and to provide adequate bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

The scheduled completion of the project is expected in Sept. 2016.
