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.

The contractor has completed clearing operation and will begin grading the roadway throughout September. The utility contractor will begin relocating the water main after Labor Day.
