Roper Mountain Road Improvements

Project Information

Description

  • SCDOT Pin number 0041471
  • Widen to 5 lanes with curb, gutter, sidewalks, and bike lanes from approximately Roper Mountain Road Extension to Blacks Drive
  • 3 lanes for the remainder of the corridor to I-85
  • Project was bundled with the Roper Mountain Road Extension Improvements Project during preliminary engineering and construction

Purpose

  • To increase capacity and accommodate existing and future traffic congestion
  • To improve left turn movements

Need

  • Growth in the area has caused traffic increases on the corridor
  • Current lane configuration causes traffic halts and slow downs when someone makes a left turn

Status

  • Utility Relocation work delaying start of construction work
  • Duke, GWS, Charter, and PNG are still in various stages of relocating
  • Anticipate roadway construction to start September with some minor work (box culvert extension and retaining wall on RMR to start late August)
