Project Description

The Bee Street and Courtenay Drive Improvement Project improved the vehicular movement around the Bee Street and Courtenay Drive area during peak hours and provided area drainage relief within the Bee Street area. The major components of the project improvements were as follows:

  • The conversion of Courtenay Drive from Spring Street to Cannon Street from two-way traffic to one-way southbound traffic.
  • The widening of Courtenay Drive between Cannon Street and Ralph Johnson Boulevard to accommodate an additional lane in each direction and improvements at its intersection with Bee Street.
  • The complete demolition, reconstruction, and widening of Bee Street from Courtenay Drive to Lockwood Boulevard to improve drainage and reduce roadway settlement.
  • The relocation of 1,206' of twelve inch water line along Bee Street from Courtenay Drive to Lockwood Boulevard.
  • Improvements to the roadway drainage system on Courtenay Drive and Bee Street to complement the city of Charleston's future Spring/Fishbourne Drainage Improvement project.
  • Upgraded traffic signals will be installed at the intersections of Courtenay Drive at Cannon Street and Courtenay Drive at Bee Street. The upgraded traffic signals will include pedestrian hand/man signal heads and improved cross walks.
