US 278 Gateway Corridor Committee

The SC Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is undertaking a US 278 Gateway Corridor project to address roadway issues along US 278 from the intersection of Moss Creek Drive to the intersection of Spanish Wells Road.

A first step in the SCDOT process for this project is an Environmental Assessment (EA) that will identify various alternative treatments for this corridor, evaluate the environmental, cultural and social impacts of each alternative, and ultimately develop a recommended alternative.

Because of the importance of this project to the Town Council created the Hilton Head Island US 278 Gateway Corridor Committee to work cooperatively with the SCDOT to gather information, obtain and provide citizen input into the EA process, and make recommendations to Town Council regarding the US 278 Environmental Assessment and Design Alternatives.
