GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – There are several roads in Berkeley County in need of work, and many of them are getting ready for much needed makeover.
Centennial Boulevard was supposed to be reopened Friday, but that’s now been pushed back about a week. This is just one of several projects the county is working on which was paid for by those transportation sales tax dollars.
The work on Centennial was more involved than the county had anticipated, which means it will be closed for another week. Portions of Hamlet Circle will be resurfaced beginning May 28th.
These are two of the four projects recently funded with $500,000 from the County Transportation Committee. The other two are Discovery Drive in Ladson and Colony Post Loop, where work is expected to begin in June.
Mike Mitas lives in Spring Grove. He says he has ridden more than 100,000 miles on his bike. Colony Post Loop needs some work in areas.
Those can be dangerous, especially on a bicycle. He knows how serious an accident can be.
“This scar on my face is actually the result of a cycling accident,” he said.
So, he is glad to hear this road will be redone in June.
“Much needed and much appreciated,” he said. “Just makes it safer for everybody who’s using the road.”
Centennial is expected to be open again next Friday. Next. we’ve got Colony Post Loop and Discovery Drive, both of those projects again begin in June.
