The route and the road diet
Part One: The road to here
Truck Route - Road Closed Web
The sign tells the tale as these barriers block a portion of York Street where it becomes Chesnut Ferry Road Extension at Ehrenclou Drive as S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) contractors work to redesign the intersection in the background. The work is part of creating a SCDOT approved and enforceable truck route around Camdens downtown district. When completed, the truck route will have paved the way for another project: a road diet of Camdens Broad Street between DeKalb and York streets. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
This week’s sudden appearance of S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) contractors starting to patch sections of Broad Street added to the already long list of ongoing road projects in Camden. SCDOT is patching and resurfacing Broad Street from Black River Road all the way north to Laurens Street at Monument Square. The project is expected to be completed in November.
