This project consists of widening Clements Ferry Road for approximately 4.5 miles from Jack Primus Road to SC 41. The improvements involve widening the two-lane roadway to a four-lane curb and gutter section, with a raised planted median and multi-use path along one side of the roadway. This stretch of roadway has a current ADT of 14,200 and includes 2 signalized intersections, approximately 100 properties that will need to be purchased and various utilities that will need to be relocated.
Preliminary engineering activities are underway. A public information meeting was held on April 27, 2017 at Philip Simmons Middle School which had 123 people in attendance. An Environmental Assessment has since been completed and is available for review at the link below. Berkeley County has scheduled a public hearing for April 26, 2018 at Philip Simmons High School from 5:00 to 7:00 to present the preliminary design and effects of the project. Right of way acquisition is expected to begin in the spring of 2018. Coordination with utility owners is underway.
