DANIEL ISLAND- (Wednesday, April 17, 2019) Berkeley County will begin construction on the Daniel Island roundabout on Monday, April 22. The project consists of constructing a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of Daniel Island Drive and Seven Farms Drive. It is expected to take 90 days to complete, weather permitting.
The initial work will consist of minor construction items that will change the traffic pattern slightly, to allow room for crews to work. This step will consist of site preparation and utility coordination. The County anticipates major construction activities to begin the final weeks of April 2019.
The project is expected to be complete in early August. This timeline was devised to minimize impact to school traffic. The roundabout will be operating prior to the 2019-2020 school year.
This project is part of the Berkeley County 2014 one-cent sales tax program and is within budget. It is expected to cost approximately $2.4 million, including design permitting, right-of-way acquisition, construction and more.
