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.
Goals for Highway 41 Corridor Improvements:
- Improve capacity along the corridor;
- Improve safety for bicyclists, pedestrians and commuters;
- Provide improved capacity at the intersection of Highway 41 and U.S. 17; and
- Complete the Gregorie Ferry Road connector.
As part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, a wide range of environmental resources will be considered while ensuring that the community and stakeholders are involved.
