Berkeley County has contracted with Banks Construction to begin work early this month on the County’s next set of dirt-to-pave projects, which are funded by the County’s One Cent Sales Tax Program. Work is set for the following roads:

  • Ranch Drive (Moncks Corner)

The County’s Dirt-to-Pave Program paves dirt/gravel roads, often in rural communities. The County established the Dirt-to-Pave Program in the 2008 One-Cent Sales Tax referendum with 28 dirt/gravel roads identified, totaling about 21.5 miles. The 2014 One-Cent Sales Tax Program, which County voters passed through a referendum that same year, identified 59 dirt/gravel roads, totaling about 12.6 miles. To date, the County has completed 65 Dirt-to-Pave projects from both the 2014 and 2008 referendums.

“Keeping our local infrastructure in quality condition is a primary goal of our administration and County Council. It’s also a chief concern for our residents. That’s why we work hard to keep our CTC and One Cent Sales Tax projects, which include our Dirt-to-Pave projects, moving forward in a timely manner. We will continue to work diligently with our County Transportation Committee and County staff to bring these projects to completion.” -Johnny Cribb, Berkeley County Supervisor
