There will be a public meeting on Thursday, September 30th at 6 PM regarding the Huger Street Streetscape Project. The meeting will be at St. Julian Devine Community Center (1 Cooper Street). Attendees will also be able to participate virtually via Zoom.

This project is the final phase of the mitigation efforts intended to offset impacts from the construction of the Arthur Ravenel Bridge. It will involve drainage improvements, new sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides of the street, turn lanes, tree planting, and street lighting on Huger Street between Meeting Street and Morrison Drive.
