Legwork for Livability is Charleston Moves’ 2021 fall campaign and bicycle ride series that will help fund our sustained commitment to resolving critical gaps in our multi-modal network. While we continuously advocate for infrastructure and policies throughout Charleston County, two major gaps and associated connections require our attention: the North Bridge between North Charleston and West Ashley, and the Wappoo Cut Bridge between West Ashley and James Island.

Your donation fuels our dedicated advocacy to bridge gaps and realize our vision of a connected Charleston that is safe, equitable and accessible. We invite you to visit our Progress Map to see the impact of addressing these barriers!

The North Bridge spans the Ashley River between West Ashley and North Charleston, and currently lacks space for people walking and biking. Being a priority project, we have been working diligently to coordinate with local governments, state agencies, elected officials and the community. We have conducted multiple rounds of surveying and data collection to better inform our advocacy and include residents who are most impacted by the dangerous conditions. Despite great progress on this critical groundwork, and successfully advocating for a conceptual study, these milestones are just the beginning. Through 2021 and 2022, we will continue our community outreach and surveying, build up widespread support, and push for assistance from the state to fund a standalone bicycle and pedestrian bridge.

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, Maryville Bikeway, new Ashley River Bicycle & Pedestrian Bridge, McLeod Plantation, Rethink Folly Road improvements, Maybank Highway complete streets work, James Island County Park, and more. Despite progress and opportunities on both sides, this bridge remains a barrier. Through 2021 and early 2022, 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.
