Kershaw County West Wateree Transportation Study

Kershaw County and the Central Midlands Council of Governments have initiated a plan to focus on identifying the right balance between growth, transportation needs, and the community’s desires for the future. The West Wateree Transportation Study is considering mobility, safety, convenience, and comfort for all modes of transportation coupled with the impact to adjoining land uses and the unique character of the area. The sub-area under study is the southwest corner of Kershaw County, including Elgin and Lugoff.

Toole Design Group, the nation’s leading planning, landscape architecture, and engineering firm specializing in multimodal transportation, has been hired to lead the Kershaw County West Wateree Transportation Study.
