Council Seeks Public Input on Transportation Plan
The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments wants public input on the development of the 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan for the Lowcountry. The federally mandated, multimodal plan will prioritize which transportation projects — roads, bridges, public transit, and bicycle and pedestrian routes — in the region will receive federal dollars over the next 25 years. The COG will host three public meetings this month to get input. The final 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan is expected to be complete by January. The 2035 plan is online. “The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester region will continue to experience growth and development, tourism and an expanding level of port activity, which will contribute to higher levels of traffic congestion without prioritized transportation improvements,” COG planning director Kathryn Basha said in a statement.
