Local News

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) — Berkeley County officials  held a public meeting concerning the Clements Ferry Road Widening Project on Thursday evening.

Berkeley County officials displayed preliminary plans for the roadwork project. The plans are still subject to change. They are collecting feedback through May 11, 2017.

This meeting comes after growing concerns from residents. People who live off the road say the dangers of the road have grown with the volume of the traffic.

The 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 road to a four-lane curb and gutter section, with a raised planted median and multi-use path along one side of the road.
We’re told the stretch of road has a current annual average daily traffic of 14,200 and includes two signalized intersections, approximately 100 properties that will need to be purchased and various utilities that will need to be relocated.
Preliminary geometric design is underway. Environmental field work and supplemental topographic surveys are also underway.
