Charleston County Bees Ferry Road Widening Awarded ACEC-South Carolina Palmetto Award
The Bees Ferry Road Widening project in Charleston County, S.C. has earned the Palmetto Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies South Carolina Chapter. This is the highest honor given to a project by the chapter.

 

TranSystems provided the engineering design services from preliminary phase through final design phase for the widening improvements of Bees Ferry Road from Ashley River Road (SC 61) to Savannah Highway (US 17).

 

Bees Ferry Road in Charleston is a heavily trafficked corridor that faced increased development and population growth, as well as flooding and drainage issues. The need to accommodate increased road and pedestrian traffic led to a road widening effort that also included water, sewer and utility improvements underneath. By widening from two lanes to four and six lanes in different areas, the corridor is better equipped to handle the increase in development.

 

“It’s not only an honor to win an Engineering Excellence Award in the category, but then to receive the Palmetto Award from the best of the best award winners was truly an achievement beyond expectations,” said TranSystems Principal and Senior Vice President Peter Strub. “Charleston County was great to work with. I am extremely happy to see them recognized and proud of the TranSystems staff involved with this award-winning project.”

 

By mitigating traffic interruption and working with multiple stakeholders, the project offers the community better connectivity, spurring economic growth and increased safety and access for pedestrians.

and convenience. But otherwise they may take no special note. Of course, that’s kind of the idea – to provide a smooth, seamless, uneventful ride between the terminals and the new, offsite multimodal transit center (a consolidated rental car and parking facility).
