MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (May 1, 2018) - Charleston County will hold a Public Information Meeting for Alternatives on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, to provide project updates and present reasonable alternatives to the community for the Highway 41 Corridor Improvements project.

At this point in the process, the project team has completed data collection, preliminary traffic and environmental studies, developed conceptual corridor alignments into a range of reasonable alternatives, and continued public outreach and engagement efforts.
The public is encouraged to attend the Public Information Meeting for Alternatives to learn more about the alternatives, view results of preliminary studies, and to provide feedback and comments to the project team. The meeting format is an open house; no formal presentation will be made.
Date: Wednesday, May 16, 2018
Time: 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Location: Park West Gym, 1251 Park West Blvd, Mt. Pleasant, SC 29466

About the project:
To accommodate an increase in traffic volume, Charleston County, the Town of Mount Pleasant, and the South Carolina Department of Transportation are partnering to improve roadway capacity and ease traffic congestion along Highway 41. As a designated hurricane evacuation route and key corridor in and out of Mount Pleasant, Highway 41 will continue to experience significant use and increased traffic congestion.
