COLUMBIA -- The South Carolina Department of Transportation has scheduled a public information meeting, Tuesday, July 17, in Dorchester County concerning the proposed safety improvement along S.C. 642 (Dorchester Road) S-373 (State Park Road) to near S-259 (Parlor Drive).
The meeting will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Oakbrook Elementary School cafeteria, 306 Old Fort Drive, Ladson. The meeting will have a drop in format with displays for viewing, informational handouts and comment forms. Project information will also be available on the SCDOT website: http://arcg.is/jPWSW
The purpose of this project is to improve the safety along this corridor to help reduce the frequency and severity of crashes occurring at this location. This location was selected for improvement through the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program.
The HSIP uses a data-driven strategic approach to identify locations throughout the state with high crash rates or patterns and implements safety enhancements through infrastructure-related improvements. The HSIP project selection requires an engineering study that includes an analysis of the crash data, an assessment of field conditions, and an evaluation of the effectiveness of all potential countermeasures to ensure maximum safety benefit is obtained for the amount of funds invested.
For more information, the public may contact SCDOT Project Manager Brett McCutchan at 803-737-1564 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Persons with disabilities who may require special accommodations should contact Betty Gray at 803-737-1395.
