Project Description

The Palmetto Commerce Parkway-Phase II project is now complete! Palmetto Commerce Parkway Phase I begins at Ladson Road (S-76) and extends for approximately 1.7 miles to a dead end. Palmetto Commerce Parkway Phase II extends approximately four miles to Ashley Phosphate Road (S-75) with a divided four-lane road and planted median. The primary purpose of this project was to provide a north-south connector linking Ladson Road and Ashley Phosphate Road. The connector improves the road network in this area of North Charleston and accommodates inner-regional travel. The extension of Palmetto Commerce Parkway relieves traffic on nearby roads, such as Dorchester Road and I-26, and provides a better distribution of traffic in the area.
