The S.C. Department of Transportation has identified four projects for possible inclusion in the fiscal year 2018 Transportation Alternatives Program.

Formerly known as the Transportation Enhancement Program, the Transportation Alternatives Program is a federally funded program administered by the S.C. DOT allows local governments to pursue nontraditional transportation-related activities such as pedestrian facilities, bicycle facilities and streetscaping. The three projects for consideration are:

  • Downtown Abbeville, East Pickens Street, Poplar Street and Clarence E. Pressley Street. Federal funds requested: $398,680 for the installation of Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant sidewalks, pedestrian lights and crosswalks.
  • Barnwell Elementary School to nearby residential neighborhoods. Federal funds requested: $400,000 for the installation of ADA-compliant sidewalks and crosswalks.
  • Horry County, the town of Aynor along 8th Avenue from S. Main Street to Oak Street. Federal funds requested: $387,234 for the installation of ADA-compliant sidewalks, pedestrian lights and crosswalks.
  • Orangeburg County, the Intersection of U.S. Highway 601 and Red Bank/Citadel roads. Federal funds requested: $400,000 for the installation of ADA-compliant sidewalks, crosswalks and mast arm signals.

 Documents are available online for review and comment until March 15.
