Kershaw County Council recently heard a report regarding an area of the county known as the Black River Road Corridor. Essentially, this is the area that runs from I-20/Exit 98 to Black River Road and beyond to Doc Humphries and Mt. Olivet roads. Because the area has experienced significant residential and commercial growth, it has also experienced a spike in traffic related issues, including vehicle accidents. So, council, in conjunction with the city of Camden, commissioned a study of the area. A story on the results of that study is on today’s front page.

While this area certainly deserves scrutiny and absolutely needs improvements it is not the only high growth area in Kershaw County. However, it does once again illustrate the need for us to be mindful of how, where and how fast we grow. 

So we hope public officials, along with a civic-minded public, can continue to work together to come up with viable solutions for our future. 

But we all need to be part of those solutions.
