Charleston County Transportation Development has started work on the Rivers Avenue at Ashley Phosphate Road Turn Lane Extension project. The project adds approximately 900 feet in length to the two left turn lanes on northbound Rivers Avenue that turn on to Ashley Phosphate Road. It also modifies the Rivers Avenue median crossing at Dunlap Street and constructs a new median crossing approximately 600 feet south of Dunlap.
The goal of the project is to help traffic flow by lengthening turn lanes on Rivers Avenue. Construction activities began on July 5 and are expected to be completed this fall.
