CJ Westfall – News Alert

From SCDOT:

“The purpose of this meeting is to inform the public of recent changes to the project since our last Jan 2020 public hearing. SCDOT has developed additional floodplain mitigation strategies for the project. These strategies involved construction activities along Sawmill Branch downstream of the project area to Dorchester Road to improve conveyance. These activities are expected to reduce the flood-related impacts associated with the project.

Virtual meeting will be live March 30-April 14th, 2021 for review and comment

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) proposes to construct the last segment or phase 3 of the Berlin Myers Parkway (BMP) in Dorchester County, South Carolina.
