Information Regarding Traffic & Safety

Daniel Island Drive and Seven Farms Drive Roundabout Site Plan – February 13 2018

Responding to resident requests regarding the roundabout:

  1. The county was able to restore most of the lost parking places on Seven Farms Drive.
  2. The county removed a couple of right turn lanes, thus shortening the on-pavement pedestrian crossing distance:
    1. On Seven Farms Drive coming from Bishop England (that had almost no effect on the performance of the RoB).
    2. On Seven Farms Drive going the opposite direction (that did effect the RoB performance a little, but City of Charleston recommended it to shorten the pedestrian crossing. If traffic becomes an issue at a later point, the city can add without affecting the location of the rest of the RoB).
    3. There are 16 solar powered flashing pedestrian crossing signs.
