SCDOT has assembled a team to study the I-26 Corridor between Charleston and Ridgeville. This area generates up to 169,000 daily trips, most of them by vehicles with a single occupant. Several problems have developed, including “Pinch Points” with frequently slowdowns, increased noise, and an increase in the number of crashes. This study will examine which public investments will deliver the best improvements for the study area.
We invite local government, stakeholders, and the public to learn about the issues causing the problems in this area, and to help develop potential solutions.
The I-26 Corridor Analysis goals are:
- Evaluate funding and implementation options to see which give the desired outcome
- Identify projects that support economic growth
- Support our commitment to safety
- Streamline the project delivery process
- Review a variety of transportation enhancement options
The study team’s task is to document the existing baseline conditions, and develop a plan to meet current and future needs. We will evaluate ALL factors that affect traffic, and come up with a plan that looks beyond infrastructure improvements. Our goal is to include strategies that lessen travel demand, or shift the demand during peak periods.
