MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Monday, August 29, 2022) – At its meeting on Monday, August 22, 2022, Berkeley County Council awarded the contract for the intersection realignment project of Foster Creek Road at Tanner Ford Boulevard in Hanahan to IPW Construction for approximately $2.35 million. View the full meeting HERE.
Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2023 with a six-month utility relocation period. The project is expected to take about 11 months to complete.
This project consists of realigning the ‘T’- shaped intersection of Foster Creek Road and Tanner Ford Boulevard and transforming the southern leg of Foster Creek Road into the intersection’s new stop condition. This will improve the flow of traffic by prioritizing the busiest movement through the intersection while also making it safer for drivers making turns.
This improvement project is funded by the 2014 One-Cent Sales Tax Referendum. Bids for the project were received on August 15, 2022.
“We are pleased that this critical intersection improvement project is advancing to the construction stage. With increased density in the Tanner Plantation/Foster Creek community and the recent addition of Bowen’s Corner Elementary School, this project will significantly improve traffic flow and safety in the region.” – Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb
