MONCKS CORNER, S.C.– (Wednesday, April 29, 2020) — The Old Mt. Holly turn-lane project in Goose Creek is set to open Wednesday, April 29, one week ahead of schedule.
Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb was joined by Goose Creek Mayor Habib and Berkeley County Councilmembers Phillip Obie and Brandon Cox to cut the ribbon on the project (see pictures attached).
The 430 linear foot dedicated right turn-lane on Old Mt. Holly provides another access lane to Highway 52 and alleviates congestion along Old Mount Holly Road. Left turn lane storage was also increased from 70 linear feet to 150 linear feet. The project is part of the Henry Brown Boulevard Phase II project, which consists of widening Henry Brown Boulevard from Liberty Hall Road to Highway 52 (see map attached).
Berkeley County Council approved the construction of the turn lane at Old Mt. Holly Road, onto Highway 52, at the council meeting on Monday, March 23. Berkeley County managed the project with support from the City of Goose Creek. Construction started on Monday, April 6.
The turn-lane project is funded by the County’s One-Cent Sales Tax Program. Seamon Whiteside Inc. handled the design and engineering for the turn-lane project; Infrastructure Consulting and Engineering (ICE) assisted the County with project management and inspection.
