A Vital Link in the Lowcountry Economy

The 526 Lowcountry Corridor connects port terminals to distribution centers, enhances local and statewide commerce and industry, and provides community connections for workforce mobility. A virtual lifeline, I-526 also includes three major river crossings to facilitate hurricane evacuation throughout the region.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT)

In cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), SCDOT will focus on a critical piece of the I-526 Corridor, extending from Rivers Avenue to Paul Cantrell Boulevard. The community is encouraged to participate in a process prescribed by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to help produce a vision for this Lowcountry gateway that reflects the needs of the region.
