Alpine Road Sidewalk Project Will Enhance Safety and Quality of Life for Residents 


The Alpine Road Sidewalk and Road Resurfacing project has begun. Crews started preliminary work on the sidewalk in April. It will cover more than two miles and connect S.C. Highway 12 (Percival Road)

to U.S. 1 (Two Notch Road). The resurfacing work is planned tobegin mid-June.

An added benefit of the new sidewalk is the connection to the
Polo Road sidewalk or “shared-use path,” another Penny project completed in 2021. This path stretches 9,000 feet past Polo Elementary School, ending at Mallet Hill Road and the Richland County Recreation Department Sports Field Complex. These two Penny-funded projects will provide more than 3.7 miles of pedestrian improvements, increasing safety and enhancing quality of life for area residents.

The Alpine Road project has an estimated budget of $4.3 million, including some S.C. Department of Transportation resurfacing funds. The anticipated completion date is September 2024.
