SCDOT nearing completion of turn lane project in Red Bank

Red Bank, SC (Paul Kirby) – The SCDOT is nearing completion of a project to install turn lanes, signals, and crosswalks in front of Saxe Gotha Elementary School in Red Bank. The school is located off Old Orangeburg Road near Platt Springs Road.

According to an SCDOT engineer, the project will add turning lanes on Old Orangeburg Road at Bill Williamson Court in both directions, crosswalks, and crossing signals. DOT traffic engineers believe this will significantly improve the flow of traffic on Old Orangeburg during the drop-off, and pick-up times for the school. In the past, parents waiting for their children have often caused traffic snarls on Old Orangeburg Road as overflow from Bill Williamson Court snaked back out into that major thoroughfare.

The project has already reached and passed its expected completion date. The DOT engineer said that a major cause of the projects delay was conflicts with existing utilities near the intersection. Waterlines, and other underground utilities had to be relocated by a contractor over the summer months before the road construction could proceed. Weather over the summer has also been a factor in delaying the project. Heavy rains have also hampered the construction efforts on the job. The engineer said that the project should be completed by November of this year.
