Charleston Traffic and Transportation Department Visits Daniel Island

At the request of the DI Property Owner’s Association, the City of Charleston Traffic and Transportation Department visited Daniel Island the week of February 13 to review several intersections of concern.  The following is a summary of their visit:

  • Intersection of Fairchild and Island Park Drive (at the new Refuel).  This area will be studied for potential improvements for pedestrian and vehicular safety.  Site lines, lack of crosswalks and the speed of traffic on Island Park Drive make this a difficult intersection for both cars and people to navigate.  There are also some infrastructure challenges for ADA compliance that need to be studied as part of the solutions.
  • Intersection of Fairchild and River Landing. While the new stop light seems to be working well, the site lines are poor due to the grade change on Fairchild Street.  The City is studying adding a turn signal for each approach to the intersection.
  • Pier View at Seven Farms. The City was asked to again study this intersection for pedestrian crossing improvements including but not limited to changes in the pavement material and/or lighting.
