It might not happen until at least 2016, perhaps later, but if the city of Camden decides to move ahead with a proposed plan to put a section of Broad Street on a "road diet," it will happen in four stages and take 18 months to complete. That was the word from Ernie Boughman of URS, the city’s engineering firm, to Camden City Council during a 4 p.m. work session Tuesday. Council also learned from City Manager Mel Pearson that the city and S.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) has the opportunity to seek perhaps $10 million in grant funds to help pay for the truck route and road diet projects.
