The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) will launch a virtual public meeting for the Lowcountry Rapid Transit (LCRT) project starting at 9 am on Monday, April 26th. The meeting can be accessed at LowcountryRapidTransit.com.
The meeting will share the locations and designs of stations for the system, proposed improvements along the 21.5 mile-long corridor, interactive maps and other updates for the community’s review. This is a vital step in bringing a modern rapid transit system to the Lowcountry. The meeting will be available through May 28.
Visitors to the online meeting will have the opportunity to review and provide input on stations, features of the system and route designs. Information will be presented via interactive map, video and more.
“LCRT is designed to serve and enhance the communities along this route,” said Sharon Hollis, BCDCOG principal planner and LCRT project lead. “The way to make this the best system possible is to hear from the community about what residents need from LCRT and their long-term vision for the region.”
Hollis added that since the last public meeting in June 2020, the project team has taken numerous steps to advance LCRT planning and development, during which the project team is working to position the project to qualify for federal funding. The virtual public meeting provides a platform to share these developments and continue to educate the community about South Carolina’s first mass transit system.
By engaging the public and stakeholders throughout this process and examining environmental and ridership analyses, and a transit orientated development study, BCDCOG has:
- Defined a route running from the Exchange Park in Ladson and connecting to North Charleston and the Charleston Peninsula before ending at Hagood and Line streets.
- Proactively positioned LCRT to be competitive in the Federal Transit Administration’s Capital Investment Grant program.
- Identified station locations and developed initial designs and features for the stations.
Comments and community input continue to play a vital role in the success of LCRT and can be submitted to the project team throughout the duration of the virtual meeting, which ends on May 28. More information about Lowcountry Rapid Transit and ways to submit comments can be found on the website LowcountryRapidTransit.com.
