Located in the Town of James Island, the need for intersection improvements along Fort Johnson Road (S-94) at Camp Road (S-28) has been identified. The primary goal of this project is to increase safety for all modes of transportation while improving traffic flow. Charleston County, the City of Charleston, the Town of James Island, and the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) have made improving this intersections a priority because of the 38 accidents that have occurred over a 5-year period.
The County has studied various improvement alternatives and their associated impacts to the natural and built environment within the study area. These studies include evaluating various types of improvements, including the installation of traffic signals and a roundabout.
The project team has also taken special consideration of the stone posts at the Camp Road intersection. Although the stone posts do not meet the criteria to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the County recognizes their significance to the community. Staff is investigating options to relocate them.
