Public meeting scheduled for Clements Ferry Rd widening

DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Changes could be coming to a popular Berkeley County Road and the public is being asked to weigh in Tuesday night.

A public meeting will be held on Daniel Island about a project to widen Clements Ferry Road, which is big news for folks who drive through and live in that area.

The meeting will only be a few hours, but it's a chance for the public to get a first look at the proposed widening project from Interstate 526 to Jack Primus Road. The project would widen just over three miles of Clements Ferry Road for bikes routes and improved walking paths.

Residents will have an opportunity to view several displays of the proposed project. The meeting will not be a formal presentation, but more of an information session for residents living in the area and to gather feedback on the project.

The meeting will start at 5 p.m. and go until 7 p.m. in the Daniel Island School multi-purpose room located at 2365 Daniel Island Drive. Parking will be available.

Engineers, right-of-way and environmental personnel from the South Carolina Department of Transportation and Berkeley County will be available to answer questions.

The project would be paid for by the Berkeley County 1 percent sales and use tax.
