County hosting virtual public meeting on Airport Frontage Road

From staff reports

Beaufort County is hosting a virtual public meeting through Wednesday, March 16, to present the proposed design for Airport Frontage Road Phase 1 improvements. This project was approved in the 2018 One Cent Sales Tax Referendum passed by County residents.

This is the second public meeting for the project. The project is estimated to cost $4,980,303.80.

The project is a two-lane urban section with an 8-foot multi-use path on one side. It also includes a traffic signal and left turn lane improvements on U.S. 21 (Sea Island Parkway). The proposed project will improve access to Lost Island Road by creating a connection to the traffic signal at Airport Circle/Sea Island Parkway intersection.

“Participating in public meetings is a great way for citizens to actively engage and provide input in the decision making process of community projects,” Capital Projects Coordinator Brittanee Fields said in a release. “Beaufort County voters passed this referendum so now they have four weeks to voice their comments, concerns and suggestions and learn more about the impact this project will have in their community.”

The virtual public meeting presents the proposed plans outlining the project. Visit www.beaufortcountypenny.com/meetings/ to participate in the meeting and submit your comments on the project by Wednesday, March 16.
