SC 170 Corridor Access Management Plan

Improving Corridor Safety

The Lowcountry Area Transportation Study (LATS) encourages citizens to get involved in a newly initiated S.C. 170 Corridor Access Management Study. The S.C. 170 corridor currently carries an average of 33,000 vehicles per day. This area has experienced significant growth, which has led to increased congestion and safety concerns along the corridor. Because widening the road would be cost prohibitive at this time, this corridor is an excellent area to implement access management strategies to improve safety and traffic flow. 

By implementing access management strategies now, the corridor will be able to handle additional traffic volumes, provide safe access, limit signalization to key locations, and provide opportunities for landscaping and multimodal uses. 

The purpose of this study is to study the traffic and growth patterns and to make recommendations on where access management strategies could most benefit the corridor. The study area begins at the intersection of SC 170 at Okatie Center South and includes 4.5 miles of SC 170 to the intersection of SC 462.
