RETHINK FOLLY ROAD: A COMPLETE STREETS STUDY

UPDATE

Thanks again to everyone that has participated in the Rethink Folly Road Planning Process!  Following a week of meetings, public hands-on-design session, and drop-in sessions, the design team presented conceptual designs for Folly Road on Wednesday, May 13, 2015.  The designs were well-received by the public and now the team moves on to the refinement stage of the process from which a draft plan will emerge.  The design team will present a draft of the plan sometime in late summer.

There is still opportunity to give your input for Folly Road!  If you were unable to stop by during the charrette, please participate online at follyroad.mindmixer.com.



DESIGN CHARRETTE


RETHINK FOLLY ROAD: A COMPLETE STREETS STUDY is being undertaken by the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) in association with the City of Charleston, the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), the Charleston Area Regional Transit Authority (CARTA), the Town of James Island, the City of Folly Beach, and Charleston County. The purpose of this study is to explore the potential to remake Folly Road as a more sustainable, multimodal corridor, which could become a precedent for the Charleston region.
