Public invited to "Rethink Folly Road" in hands-on design session

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Community members made their way into First Baptist School Activity Center Thursday, putting their plans for Folly Road improvement on paper.

The public meeting is part of a near half-million dollar study series, approved by the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments, or COG, aimed at giving the public a voice in improvement plans for the James Island Road, which include reducing traffic while improving quality of life.

Lead consulting firm, Dover, Kohl, and Partners started with a half-hour presentation, before facilitating small groups.  Residents were then encouraged to draw their desired improvements, equipped with markers, an aerial map of Folly Road, and puzzle-like pieces representing various forms of travelers, like cars, bicyclists, and public transportation.

Rethink Folly Road is a complete streets study, exploring the possibility of transforming the area into a more sustainable, multimodal corridor.

The group will host open sessions throughout the week, all at the First Baptist School Activity Center at 2051 George L. Griffith Road, in Charleston.

The Open House runs Friday, May 8 through Tuesday May 12, from 10am-6pm and again Sunday evening from 5-7pm.

The study will conclude with a wrap up presentation, Wednesday May 13th, from 6:30-8:30pm.
