Charleston County Government will host a public introduction meeting to discuss the proposed Palmetto Commerce Interchange (PCI) infrastructure project. The meeting is scheduled for 6-8 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 3, in the sanctuary at Northside Baptist Church, 7800 Northside Drive, North Charleston. The introduction meeting will be conducted in an open-house format and staff will provide a project overview at 6:30 p.m.
The PCI project is being designed to provide a new interchange on I-26, between U.S. Highway 78 (University Boulevard) and Ashley Phosphate Road. The interchange will also serve as a direct connection to Palmetto Commerce Parkway.
Project staff will present alternatives that are being studied and share findings on potential impacts for the community and residents. Attendees will have the opportunity to review exhibits, provide written comments and meet one-on-one with Charleston County and project team representatives.
Note that the Sept. 3 meeting will not be a forum for spoken public comment. However, such a meeting will take place at a later date and will be announced and advertised in advance.
Throughout the planning process, there will be regular opportunities for community feedback via public meetings and the PCI project website at www.pci.charlestoncounty.org. Timelines with project status, significant milestones and future public meetings will also be available on the website.
Anyone with questions about the meeting may contact the Charleston County Transportation Development Department at 843-202-6140.
