Charleston County Transportation Development Safety Mission
We strive in all of our efforts to evaluate, design and construct projects with public safety as our highest priority. While working to achieve this goal we do everything possible to ensure the safety of the citizens, the environment, our employees and our contract partners before, during and after the completion of every project.

Example of traffic signs letting travelers know that they are entering into a work zone and need to obey any temporary traffic laws in order to keep themselves and any workers safe.
Charleston County regularly coordinates with local utilities to ensure any needed relocations are done safely and efficiently to eliminate safety concerns and have as short of a service interruption as possible.
An example of a Traffic Alert sent to inform citizens about lane changes, road closures and any other construction items that have the potential to change road conditions. These are broadcasted to local media outlets as well as social media and are available on the Charleston County website. To sign up for them click one of the links below.
