Boy Scout Troop 50 puts Medallions on Stormwater Inlets 

 

Boy Scout Troop 50 puts Medallions on Stormwater Inlets

The Boy Scouts of Troop 50, in cooperation with the Ashley Cooper Stormwater Education Consortium, Charleston County Stormwater and the Town of James Island, installed medallions on stormwater inlets throughout the Town of James Island this past Sunday, March 12th.  Above is a picture of the medallion.  This medallion reminds folks that what goes into the storm drains goes directly to the marshes, creek and rivers around James Island.  There is no treatment for stormwater before it enters the surrounding habitats that are home to fish, crabs, shrimp and oysters as well as many species of birds and animals. 

            As part of the medallion installation program, door hangers were distributed in some areas that go on to explain that pet waste, yard chemicals and automobile fluids, including car wash soap, that go into the street or parking lot drains enter our marshes and creeks.  The best way to protect our important natural habitats is to keep our stormwater as clean as possible.

            The Scouts installed over 100 medallions around the Town of James Island and were in 7 neighborhoods.  This was part of an Eagle Scout Project and we can expect more projects like this until all the stormwater inlets on James Island are marked.

            For more information on Stormwater quality and what you can do to keep our stormwater clean, go to the Ashley Cooper Stormwater Education Consortium at http://www.clemson.edu/extension/carolinaclear/regional-consortiums/acsec/index.html or call the local Clemson Extension office at 843-730- 5212.

Charleston County Government announces a temporary nighttime detour starting Sunday, March 12 for traffic on Camp Road. A segment of Camp Road will be closed to traffic from approximately 200 feet east of Folly Road to Bradford Street

Crews will be repairing sections of the road in preparation of widening Camp Road for new turn lanes. The widening will begin once the repairs are complete and the detour will be discontinued. Traffic lanes on Camp Road will then be shifted for several months until all of the widening at the intersection is complete and the new turn lanes are opened to traffic. Drivers traveling through the project’s construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working in the area at all times. All work is weather permitting.

March 12 – March 13

  • Nighttime detour on Camp Road is scheduled for Sunday and potentially Monday between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  • Westbound traffic on Camp Road will be directed onto Bradford and Prescott Streets to access Folly Road.
  • Northbound traffic on Folly Road will be directed onto Prescott and Bradford Streets to proceed east on Camp Road. 
  • Flagmen will be on site to control traffic.  
  • Drivers will have access to businesses and residential properties along Camp Road at all times.

The Folly Road at Camp Road Intersection Improvements Project on James Island involves improvements to Folly Road from about 1,000 feet south of Camp Road to the intersection with Eugene Gibbs Street and Rivers Point Row, and improvements to Camp Road from West Madison Avenue to Oyster Point Row. Improvements will relieve traffic congestion and localized flooding by adding turn lanes and upsizing drainage pipes. Bike lanes and sidewalks will also be included in the project.
