COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) will hold a pubic meeting in order to inform residents and get feedback on a proposed safety improvement project along Two Notch Road/US-1 from Two Notch Road to Valhalla Drive.

According to the SCDOT website, the project is based on a Road Safety Assessment (RSA), which was previously conducted in partnership between SCDOT, Richland County, South Carolina Highway Patrol, Columbia Police, and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

Safety improvements were identified by the RSA based on crash data analysis. Final improvement plans may include a raised median, U-turn accommodations, crosswalks, and ADA improvements.

The public is invited to attend a drop-in meeting 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, at E.L. Wright Middle School, 2740 Alpine Rd., Columbia. 

There will be displays for viewing, informational handouts, and comment forms for providing written comments. Formal verbal comments will not be taken during this meeting. Personnel from SCDOT will be available to answer questions and discuss the project with interested citizens on an individual basis.

Construction is scheduled to begin in Fall 2021.
