Awendaw Road Construction Projects

Awendaw Road Improvements
The Town of Awendaw and Charleston County are currently working on several road improvement projects. 

Porcher School Road  Preliminary work to widen the travel lanes, improve drainage and build a base for pavement has been completed for the unpaved portion of Porcher School Road.  Paving will occur this fall along with repaving the front portion of the road.

Thompson Hill Road and Heinson Circle Road   Work is now underway to do a survey and complete preliminary plans to widen and pave Thompson Hill Road and Heinson Circle Road.  The Mayor held an open house meeting in mid-July to allow residents to see the proposed plans and to comment on the project.

The County has a paving program that is an in-house analysis of roads needing to be repaved.  This program ranks ALL roads in Charleston County and the Town has no input into this process.  The current list includes Fifteen Mile Landing Road which will be repaved in this fall. 

The Town continues to seek funding to improve our road system.  We have applied to Charleston County for funding to improve the section of Doar Road between Town Hall and Highway 17 to create the Town Center as envisioned in the 2017 Comprehensive Plan. This plan will create a park between two separated lanes of traffic.  It will be several months before we know if that is approved.
