Public Input Sought for Walk + Bike BCD

The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) is hosting four public meetings to gather input for Walk + Bike BCD, the regional pedestrian and bicycle master plan. The meetings will be an open house format allowing interested citizens to drop-in at any time between 3pm and 8pm. All residents of the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester region are invited to learn about proposed roadway and trail improvements and recommended new programs and policies for active transportation. Residents are encouraged to use this one-on-one time with the project team to share their vision for walking and bicycling in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.

Walk Bike BCD is a visionary and comprehensive plan focusing on improvements to safety and access for people traveling by foot, on bike, or on bus. Public participation is critical to developing the WALK BIKE BCD plan. Proposed improvements are based on data-driven analysis, as well as input received through a series of public outreach strategies including a stakeholder committee, multiple “pop-up” meetings at community events throughout the region, a citizen survey, and an online interactive mapping tool. Following the input received through the upcoming public meetings, the project team will incorporate citizen feedback and establish criteria for prioritizing projects across the region in a way that will guide future investments in active transportation.

For those unable to attend, information about the plan’s progress and an online comment form are provided at www.walkbikeBCD.com

  1. Paul Luman says:

    We voted to address some of our very challenging traffic bottlenecks with the half-cent tax. However, not a “half penny” goes to alleviate the traffic on Highway 17 South and Folly Road to Johns Island. We need to build one bridge for the Johns Island Connector from the Citadel Mall terminal of I-526 to Maybank Highway. And build a left turn overpass at the intersection of the James Island Connector and Folly Road.

    But most of all we need I-526 completed in its entirety !
