The Santee-Lynches Regional Council of Governments (S-LRCOG) is currently developing the region’s next Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which is used to identify and prioritize transportation investments throughout the region.

The S-LRCOG transportation plan includes all or part of Kershaw, Clarendon, Lee and Sumter counties.

As the region and its population changes, transportation facilities must evolve to meet those changes needs, the S-LRCOG said in a press release. The plan, known as “Forward 2045,” will serve as the blueprint for future projects in the region and will strive to:

• improve safety and performance of the transportation system;

• ensure that the transportation system supports a good quality of life and strong educational, industrial, commercial and recreational development; and

• expand transportation options for all residents.

Residents can participate in this planning process in several ways. In Kershaw County, a public workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 19, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Kershaw County Council chambers inside the government center at 515 Walnut St. in Camden.

In addition, a Web survey and mapping tool has been created for residents to record their opinions about transportation. That site can be accessed at www.wikimapping/wikimap/Forward-2045.html. Additional details on the planning process will be posted regularly at
