Crews will be removing the Ashley River Bridge Bike & Pedestrian test lane this weekend. 

Officials with the Charleston County Government say crews will be removing the traffic controls for the test lane on Sunday, May 15. 

"Crews will begin removing barricades around 7:00 a.m. and work will be completed that morning," officials said.

Officials released the following statement regarding the lane: 

Since the installation of the temporary lane closure, designed to test the impact of the proposed bike lane, Charleston County staff, City of Charleston staff and the County consultant have been monitoring the daily traffic counts and travel times on all the approaching routes, including the James Island Connector. The data collection is complete for the test phase of this project and all traffic control for the lane closure will be removed. The data will be analyzed and a report of our findings will be made available in late June.

Anyone with questions about the project can call Charleston County’s Transportation Development Department at (843) 202-6140.
