SPEAK UP FOR EQUITABLE MOBILITY!

AZALEA DRIVE ROAD DIET STUDY
 SIGN THE PETITION: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/azalea-drive-road-diet-study 

The Azalea/Cosgrove intersection and segment of Azalea from Leeds to Cosgrove are in dire need of safety improvements, and connect to a popular corner grocery, an elementary school, several churches, greenspace and neighborhoods. It also leads to the Lowcountry Food Bank and has several bus stops. However, we need the road diet study to determine what room could be made for safety improvements.

Please sign our petition to Charleston County to help us advocate for these upgrades to protect our nearby communities and the vulnerable road users who endure hostile roadway conditions on a daily basis.

HIGHWAY 41
 EMAIL COUNTY COUNCIL TO OPPOSE ALTERNATIVE 1 

If the proposed design (Alternative 1) is to be selected by County Council, it will cause disproportionate, irreversible and permanent damage to both Phillips and Seven Mile communities, two of few remaining historic African American settlement communities. The proposal will widen Highway 41 to five lanes, directly through the center of Phillips. Email County Council to request they oppose Alternative 1 and come up with a better solution that serves and benefits all members of the community.

CLOSE CALLS DATABASE
 SUBMIT AN INCIDENT: bit.ly/closecallsdatabase 
Charleston Moves collects “close call” reports between motorists and people on bike or foot. This not only helps us identify hotspots that warrant increased enforcement for the protection of vulnerable road users, but also informs safety audits and reviews, as well as potential infrastructure improvement projects.

BRIDGE THE ASHLEY
 SIGN THE PETITION: bit.ly/bridgetheashleypetition 

This campaign is about not only ensuring the Ashley River Bicycle & Pedestrian Bridge and associated intersections are installed and improved, but also about working to get bicycle and pedestrian access for the North Bridge, James Island Connector and Wappoo Cut Bridge.

OPEN STREETS
