Long Point Road Extension

LP REALIGN

NOTE:  Based on the June 2018 Town Council action, the realignment portion of the this project was cancelled.  Staff is evaluating alignment options for a roadway extension between US 17 and Rifle Range Road.


Description:


   
This project involves a roadway extension from US 17 to Billy Swails Boulevard and Rifle Range Road, primarily through the future jointly-owned Town of Mount Pleasant and Charleston County park. The extension provides better connection between the existing and planned arterial network, which decreases trip lengths and disperses traffic to more intersections, versus concentrating it at fewer.  The extension project was authorized for design in FY 2018 and is on-going.  The design scope of work follows the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, which enables the Town to take advantage of federal funds, should they become available to the project.    

Status
  
A public information meeting for the Long Point Road Extension project was held on February 22, 2018, at Christ Church, with about 50 citizens attending. Another public meeting is anticipated before the end of the year. Traffic modeling and analyses for the entire roadway network, to include the Long Point Road Realignment and Extension and Billy Swails Boulevard projects, is on-going through our Comprehensive Plan and Long Range Transportation Plan updates. Design year traffic for these projects is being developed in conjunction with that modeling process. Results of the those efforts will be provided at future public meetings scheduled for both our Comp Plan/LRTP process as well as for the individual Long Point Road and Billy Swails Boulevard projects.
