Charleston Neck Rail Study

MapThe purpose of this study is to develop a future rail plan for “the Neck”, that narrow part of the peninsula along the boundary between the cities of Charleston and North Charleston running generally between Cosgrove Avenue and Mt. Pleasant Streets.  The work efforts is designed to obtain insights into the requirements for a rail system within the study areas that will meet anticipated rail traffic demands from both existing and future rail users.  New and expanding industries and terminals along the eastern side of the Neck along with potential rail commuter service, for example, are expected to place significant additional demand on the rail system.  At the same time land uses in the area are being converted from industrial to less rail-compatible commercial and residential that are expected to generate significant vehicular traffic.  Needed rail system improvements and modifications are identified while at the same time means to minimize impacts on future land use and roadway vehicular traffic are explored.
