The proposed work consists of the construction of approximately 3.25 miles of new roadway on new location between US 17A and SC 165 (East Carolina Avenue), referred to as Phase 3 of the Berlin Myers Parkway. The design for the major portion of Phase 3 of Berlin Myers Parkway will consist of two travel lanes in each direction (12-foot wide outer lane and 12.5 foot wide inner lane), with curb and gutter. The project will also include a single point urban interchange (SPUI) at the intersection of Berlin Myers Parkway and East Carolina Avenue. The project includes the relocation of a portion of the Sawmill Branch Walk/ Bike Trail between East Carolina and Luden Drive. A new segment of trail would be constructed between Greenwave Boulevard and Luden Drive that connects to a sidewalk adjacent to the proposed roadway. 


Because the project is being proposed in a floodplain and in the vicinity of a Civil Works project, the proposed work also includes various floodplain mitigation efforts which directly impact the Civil Works flood risk management project (Sawmill Branch). Specifically, these efforts include the excavation along and in wetlands and benching a portion of the north side of Sawmill Branch to increase its hydraulic capacity. Areas of the floodplain will be excavated to a lower elevation, resulting in “excavation” impacts to waters of the United States.
