Port Access Road Final Project Update PDF icon

Phase I of the SC Port Access Road project opened in March 2021 with two inbound and two outbound lanes connecting the SC Ports Authority’s new Hugh K. Leatherman Terminal with a fully directional I-26 Interchange in North Charleston, SC. The east bound I-26 ramp to Meeting Street (US 52) and the westbound I-26 ramp from Meeting Street were also upgraded during this phase.

On February 22, 2022, Phase II of this project opened to provide local and commercial vehicle access. As part of these Phase II improvements, it is possible to utlize a new Tidewater Road Bridge to the Charleston County Parks and Recreation’s (CCPR) Cooper River Park and Marina from the Port Access Road/I-26 Interchange. It is also now possible to travel to and from the Port Access Road and Spruill Avenue, Meeting Street/Carner Avenue, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), and the former Navy Base via the recently opened Bainbridge Avenue connector road. Stromboli Avenue has become a complete street with four traffic lanes, curb and gutter, a landscaped median, sidewalk and a 10 foot wide multi-use path, with a bridge over the railroad and an new community development opportunity between Meeting Street/Carner Avenue and Spruill Avenue.
