King Street below Line Street
In August 2019, the Charleston Moves team joined the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and their consultants, the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG), the City of Charleston, and Charleston County on a Road Safety Audit (RSA) of King Street below Line Street. This street is one of the top ten most dangerous corridors in the state for people walking and biking. The intent of the RSA is to assess the conditions and make suggestions for improvement in order to make the road safe and functional for all users. Included in the RSA are existing plans as well, such as People Pedal. Charleston Moves supplied relevant data from our “Close Calls” database. Planners and engineers across agencies will rely on this document as they develop safety improvement projects for the corridor. Both the City and state have begun developing projects for implementation out of the report. Stay tuned for updates.
