ReThink Folly Road 

Open House

The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) invites community members to attend an Open House to continue the conversation about the future of the Folly Road corridor, extending from the Wappoo Cut Bridge on James Island to Center Street on Folly Beach.

Community Open House | Wednesday, August 26, 2015

5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Lowcountry Senior Center, 865 Riverland Drive, Charleston, SC


In May 2015, a public design charrette was conducted to develop a vision for the Folly Road corridor.  Since the charrette, the ideas generated have been further studied and detailed. A draft summary report, as well as appendix of analysis materials, is now ready for review here:


Attend the Open House to learn more about the ideas for mobility, urban design, and green infrastructure on Folly Road, as well as give us your feedback!


If you cannot attend the Open House, comments on the draft report materials can be sent via email to

Interested community members can also participate and continue the conversation online at  In this “virtual town hall,” stakeholders and community members can become part of a forum where ideas are generated, evolved, and ultimately prioritized for the future of the Folly Road corridor.


Rethink Folly Road: A Complete Streets Study is being undertaken by BCDCOG in association with the City of Charleston, the Town of James Island, the City of Folly Beach, Charleston County, the Charleston Area Regional Transit Authority (CARTA), and the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT). The purpose of this study is to identify the opportunities and explore the potential to transform the Folly Road corridor into a more sustainable, multimodal corridor, which could serve as a precedent for the Charleston region.
