US 52
Corridor Study

18 Miles of Opportunity

As the region grows, the connection between Goose Creek and Moncks Corner will be more important than ever.
Let’s plan it right.

SURVEY

US 52 Corridor Survey

Survey available until January 14, 2022

What is the US 52 Corridor Study?

The US 52 Corridor Study is a key planning project in the region that seeks to:

  • Establish a vision for the US 52 corridor between Moncks Corner and North Charleston.
  • Define the relationship between the roadway and adjacent land uses.
  • Plan for the corridor’s overall future growth.
The study will serve as a tool to assess the corridor’s existing conditions and develop a preferred future condition.

It will also offer a range of context-sensitive multimodal solutions – such as high-capacity transit – that maximize existing infrastructure and improve safety and corridor access/mobility.

Finally, the US 52 Corridor Study will support coordinated land uses and corridor preservation across all impacted jurisdictions.

Study map

The US 52 Corridor Study area extends approximately 18 miles between the intersection of US Hwy. 17-Alt. and Rembert C. Dennis Boulevard in Moncks Corner and US 78 (University Boulevard) in North Charleston.

The study area also includes the roughly 12-mile parallel stretch along Old US 52 and Rembert C. Dennis Boulevard/US 52 Bypass in Moncks Corner.

BCDCOG intends to use the study to develop a strong linkage between the corridor’s land use and transportation needs across modes, including roadway, pedestrian and bicycle, and transit networks.

Key Elements

The key elements of the study include:

  • Traffic Operations and Safety
  • Roadway Geometry and Access Management
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian Mobility and Connectivity
  • Transit Needs, Including the Preservation of Right-of-Way and Development to Support Future High-Capacity Transit
  • Freight Operations, Including Impacts of Adjacent At-Grade Rail Crossings
  • Alternate Land Use Scenarios to Achieve a Balance Between Transportation Needs and Impacts
  • Environmental Screening of Existing Conditions and Recommended Improvements
  • Short-, Mid-, and Long-Term Infrastructure Improvements, Strategies and Policy Recommendations
  • Public Outreach and Engagement throughout the planning process

Study framework

The US 52 Corridor Study offers a critical opportunity to focus on land use and transportation decisions that can mitigate adverse impacts for communities and the environment as growth occurs.

Public outreach, virtually and in-person (as appropriate), will take place throughout the study process to inform the community of progress and findings and solicit input in making final recommendations.

Study Team

BCDCOG and study consultant STV Incorporated will work with a broad range of groups and individuals to establish a shared corridor vision. Together, this coalition will develop a plan that provides guidance on what future infrastructure investments are needed to successfully achieve that vision.

The study team will conduct a comprehensive analysis of existing conditions, an assessment of corridor needs and engage the community in a scenario planning exercise to determine a preferred future land use condition.

The final plan will include a range of context-sensitive short-, and long-term multimodal improvements needed to improve the operation, mobility and safety of the corridor as well as guide decision makers on how the corridor develops.

Partners in the project include:

  • Berkeley County Government
  • Town of Moncks Corner
  • City of Goose Creek
  • SCDOT
  • Berkeley County Residents
  • Businesses and Developers
