South Carolina Proposes I-95 Improvements

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) recently held a public hearing concerning proposed safety improvements along a portion of Interstate 95.

The purpose of the project is to reduce the number of traffic fatalities and serious injuries along the I-95 corridor within Jasper County, a 33-mile section beginning at the Georgia/South Carolina state line (milepost 0) and continuing north to milepost 33. This project involves adding safety features to try to keep vehicles on the road and improving the clear zone, the unobstructed area beyond the edge of the roadway, to allow drivers to stop safely or regain control of a vehicle that leaves the traveled way. Improvement of the clear zone will require tree removal in various locations throughout the corridor, select placement of cable barrier, minor grading and the strategic placement of steel beam guardrail in select locations to protect wetlands areas and/or steep slopes.

All work will take place within SCDOT’s right-of-way and no additional right-of-way will be required. This location was selected for improvement through the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program, which uses a data-driven strategic approach to identify locations throughout the state with high crash rates or patterns.

The public meeting gave attendees an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed concept plans.

I-95 Enforcement Initiative in Maryland Begins Tomorrow

To help prevent crashes from speeding and aggressive driving, multiple law-enforcement agencies will participate in a joint enforcement effort along the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway (I-95) tomorrow.

The joint effort includes the Maryland State Police, the MDTA Police, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, the Bel Air Police Department, the Havre de Grace Police Department and the Aberdeen Police Department. Officers and deputies will saturate northbound and southbound I-95 between the Harford/Baltimore County line and the MD 24 interchange to enforce the posted speed limit of 65 mph in this area and to focus on other aggressive-driving behaviors.

MOVE OVER and protect those who protect us. Maryland law requires drivers to MOVE OVER when approaching an emergency vehicle or tow truck using visual signals. If a safe lane change is not possible, drivers must slow down.

On average, more than 15,000 speed-involved crashes occur on Maryland roadways each year, and speeding is a major component in aggressive-driving crashes. In addition, speed increases the risk of serious injury or death in a crash. The five-year Maryland Strategic Highway Safety Plan brings together public-sector, private-sector and non-profit partners to combat traffic crashes and resulting serious injuries and fatalities.
