FILLING A CRITICAL GAP
The Wappoo Cut Bridge is located along Folly Road between West Ashley and James Island. While it has sidewalks leading to it, and a maintenance path across, the space is too narrow and close to fast-moving vehicles. This is a key corridor that links destinations with existing infrastructure and pending projects, including:
- the West Ashley Greenway
- the Maryville Bikeway
- the new Ashley River Bicycle & Pedestrian Bridge
- McLeod Plantation
- Rethink Folly Road improvements
- Maybank Highway complete streets work
- James Island County Park
Despite progress and opportunities on both sides, this bridge remains a barrier. Check out our Progress Map to see the benefits of unlocking access for all across the Cut.
Through 2021, we will be working on a technical assistance grant application to determine the best way to tackle this, while building up stakeholder support and community storytelling.
