Folly Road / Camp Road Intersection Improvements
The Folly Road/Camp Road Intersection Improvements Project will involve review of the need for additional turn lanes required to improve travel efficiency and safety. The Folly Road/Camp Road intersection has been cited by the city of Charleston as the most congested intersection on James Island, which in turn creates "negative transportation impacts throughout other roads on James Island".
Charleston County RoadWise has received public comments and concerns regarding tree impacts along Camp Road resulting from the alternatives that propose lane additions for the Folly Road/Camp Road Intersection Improvement Project. Due to the amount of comments received, an additional alternative has been developed. The new alternative suggests reducing the width of the of the travel lanes from 12 feet to 11 feet; meandering sidewalks around the trees instead of placing them directly behind the curb and gutter; and designing the drainage improvements to run under the roadway instead of under the sidewalk. Each of these changes will contribute to the reduction of tree impacts on Camp Road. This alternative was presented at the third public meeting.
The third public meeting was held on Aug. 27, 2009 from 7 - 9 p.m. at James Island Charter High School.
The two week comment period has ended for the the Folly Road/Camp Road intersection improvements project. The Public Meeting Comment Summary report is currently being developed and will be posted to this Web site upon completion.
