First Round of Public Input Meetings Scheduled for US-52 Corridor Study

The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) will host its first round of public input meetings for the US-52 Corridor Study on December 13 and 14, 2021.

The public meetings will allow the study team to gather critical information about the corridor from the community, including commuters who travel the roadway as well as residents and business owners located along the corridor. The public is encouraged to identify issues or challenges on this regionally significant roadway, as well as strengths and opportunities to provide a healthy multi-modal corridor benefitting all users including motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists, and transit riders.

The community will also be asked to help establish a vision for the corridor in an effort to better plan for the future growth and development anticipated along the corridor.

The public meeting schedule is as follows:

Monday, December 13 at the City of Goose Creek Fire Station Headquarters (Training Room) from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. located at 210 Button Hall Avenue, Goose Creek, SC.

Tuesday, December 14 at the Moncks Corner Town Hall (Council Chambers) from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. located at 118 Carolina Avenue, Moncks Corner, SC.

The US 52 Corridor Study is a planning project that seeks to establish a shared vision for the 18-mile regionally significant US-52 corridor from US Hwy. 17-Alt. in Moncks Corner to US 78/Rivers Ave. in North Charleston, and proactively plan for the future growth and increased travel demands that will be placed on the corridor.

The Study will offer:

Analyses to identify deficiencies, issues, or needs that may impact corridor operations, safety, mobility, and access.

Define the relationship or linkage between the corridor’s land use and the transportation improvements needed to support growth and economic development, both today and in the future.

Context-sensitive solutions for the corridor that balance the unique needs and visions of the communities it serves.

Decision-makers a plan that identifies a range of multimodal transportation solutions aimed to improve corridor operations, mobility, and safety for all users including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users, and supports coordinated land uses and corridor preservation across jurisdictions.
