CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Construction has wrapped up at an intersection in West Ashley that tends to see heavy traffic. City officials celebrated the end of the work on Wednesday.
Improvements were recently completed where Sam Rittenberg Boulevard meets Ashley River Road with the goal of improving safety and relieving traffic congestion.
Upgrades to the area include a new left turn lane coming from Wappoo Road and another left turn lane heading toward Wappoo Road. Sidewalks and lanes were also widened in the area and signal timing should be better, according to officials.
The southbound right turn lane on Sam Rittenberg coming from Wappoo Road has also been extended along with widened lanes.
The city of Charleston will hold a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. Wednesday which includes mayor John Tecklenburg to celebrate the completion of the project.
