Construction Begins on Victoria Avenue Sidewalk Project

Construction is underway on this 4,600-foot sidewalk and a pedestrian bridge in North Charleston.
All motorists traveling through the project area are asked to be aware of equipment and crews during construction. The public is asked to take notice of traffic control signs and to note that all road work is dependent on the weather.

The project description is as follows:
  • The sidewalk will be 4,600 feet in length and will be five feet wide
  • It will begin at the intersection of Park Place and North Rhett Avenue, and will be constructed along the north side of Park Place to Victoria Avenue.
  • It will continue along the east side of Victoria Avenue ending at the existing sidewalk on Maxwell Street.
  • Portions of the existing ditch on Victoria Avenue will be filled with drainage pipes to accommodate the new sidewalk.
  • A pedestrian bridge will be constructed over the existing canal.

A ground-breaking ceremony was held on June 9, 2010 to kick-off the construction effort, which is expected to be completed in September 2010. Following public input meetings held in 2008, staff compiled the input and brought a recommendation to Charleston County Council, which approved the project as a 2008 Local Paving Project.

The following local officials spoke at the event:
As other work on the project that could disrupt traffic arises, notifications will be announced through news releases issued to local media and posted on both the Charleston County Government and Charleston County RoadWise Web sites.Click here to view the 2008 public meeting handout for more details.
