The SCDOT, Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study, City of Mauldin and Federal Highway Administration will hold a public information meeting on the proposed Butler Road improvement project in Mauldin Jan. 14 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Mauldin Cultural Center at 101 E. Butler Road in Mauldin.
In addition to the in-person meeting, members of the public can attend an online meeting on the project website buildingabetterbutler.com, which is available through Feb. 5.
“The public will be able to review information, maps and a video on the proposed project and submit comments through the website and at the in-person meeting,” said SCDOT project manager Casey Lucas. “Written comments from the public are very important to the planning process for the project, which is being designed to improve safety and traffic flow along Butler Road.”
The proposed project would improve a 1.7-mile section of Butler Road extending from North Main Street to the Mauldin Senior Center entrance. It includes two new bridges over Gilder Creek, intersection and sidewalk improvements, a multiuse bike/pedestrian path and a new curb and gutter.
Once complete, the project is estimated to cost $17 million, but the SCDOT is providing funds to GPATS for the project, which includes a SCDOT match for federal funding.
Members of the public interested in attending the in-person meeting are encouraged to make an appointment by contacting Casey Lucas at 803-737-1087 or [email protected] or through the project website.
