Clements Ferry Widening Project draws large crowd
It was standing room only in the Daniel Island School Multi-Purpose Room on Monday, January 18, as more than 350 community members gathered to learn more about the Clements Ferry Road Widening Project. A panel consisting of a number of local legislators and other elected officials took to the stage to provide updates and answer questions from the crowd. Among those in attendance were Berkeley County Councilman Josh Whitley, who organized the meeting; South Carolina DOT Commission Chairman Jim Rozier; Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler; City of Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg; Sen. Larry Grooms; Rep. Jim Merrill; Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis; and Berkeley County School Board Member Mac McQuillin. Whitley called traffic concerns on Clements Ferry Road “the number one issue in District 2.” One of the evening’s biggest announcements was that construction on Phase One, which extends from I-526 to Jack Primus Road, could begin as early as September.
