Construction is estimated to begin in 2020 and to be completed in 2021.
The preliminary design process started on October 29, 2013. During this phase of the project, engineers, surveyors, scientists and other specialists have been gathering data, conducting surveys and analyzing project information. This process will enable the project team to evaluate alternative traffic measures, assess potential improvement opportunities and identify project impacts for permitting. Information collected included: traffic data, location of roadway features, area topography, existing structures and utilities, environmental resources, wetlands, and storm drainage features. The surveys will also facilitate roadway design and future construction plans. The project team will remain in the preliminary design phase until the design alternatives that were presented and discussed at the Public Meetings in 2014 can be fully vetted by and agreed upon by local, state and federal governing agencies. Our goal is to complete the assessment of the design alternatives in 2016 and hold a public hearing to present the preferred alternative in 2017.
The Airport Connector Road Project (Project) was initiated by Charleston County Government to provide an improved quality of life for citizens through better traffic operations and to enhance the economic development competitiveness for business in the Charleston region.
The Project will provide a new direct access road to Charleston International Airport and should relieve traffic congestion by providing a new connection from Dorchester Road to Montague Avenue near the Mark Clark Expressway (I-526).
The initial concept is to build over 3 miles of a new, four-lane road, which will provide locals and visitors with a new route to the airport.
