Big changes may be coming to Maybank Highway

JOHNS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - There could be some big changes coming to Maybank Highway to help improve traffic and Charleston County wants to remind the more than 250 people who attended a public meeting last month to fill out their comments.

There are several alternatives for the project that include bike paths and parking spaces along parts of the road. The first would widen Maybank to a four-lane road from Main Road to the Stono River Bridge.

The other plan, called the Town and Country Pitchfork alternative, would put turn lanes in more dense areas including the intersection of Maybank and River.

Information regarding the alternative plans can be found here. Comments can be submitted here.
