The Dougherty Road Corridor Study, a joint Aiken City/Aiken County study using URS Consultants, is examining several alternatives addressing corridor and network features for Dougherty Road and the vicinity. Guiding principles and visual preferences have been identified through a series of public meetings and surveys.
The findings from additional analysis of the pros and cons of each possible alternative will be presented April 2013. Work on data collection, transportation analysis, traffic modeling and an assessment of user and neighborhood needs and preferences are part of this systematic planning study. Recommendations will address vehicular capacity and flow balanced by community desires.
A report on the Study will be available by early Summer.
Please contact the City of Aiken Planning Department or 803-642-7608 for more information.
Information will continue to be posted as the study progresses.
