Earlier this year, the Town contracted planning and design consultants Kimley-Horn to develop a safety action plan addressing bicycle and pedestrian interaction along Beachwalker Drive.
The purpose of the plan is to analyze continuous bicycle paths, options for raised pedestrian crossings, and safety options for the cohesion between bicycles, pedestrians, and vehicles.
To supplement the plan, Kimley-Horn also analyzed the potential geometric improvements to the Beachwalker Drive at Kiawah Island Parkway intersection.
Kimley-Horn has produced preliminary concepts of recommendations which were presented on June 10 at an initial stakeholder meeting with community representatives. Meeting materials are available here.
