Vaughn Ed Kee Parkway

VAUGHN ED KEE PARKWAY

NOTE:  This project previously involved the realignment of Long Point Road to Old Georgetown Road and the extension of a new roadway from US 17 to Rifle Range Road.  Based on the June 2018 Town Council action, the realignment portion of the project was removed.  This roadway section has been named Vaughn Ed Kee Parkway in honor of Officer Kee who was killed in the line of duty December 13, 1985. 

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.    View the final design here.
