Summerville Celebrates the Conclusion of the Midland Parkway Resurfacing Project

Midlane Parkway

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (November 17, 2023) – The Town of Summerville is pleased to announce the imminent completion of the resurfacing project on Midland Parkway. The final phase of the project, which involves the application of pavement markings, is scheduled to take place starting this Sunday at 10 a.m. with the Raised Pavement Markings being installed on Monday.

Over the past few months, Summerville has undertaken a comprehensive resurfacing initiative to enhance the safety and quality of the road infrastructure along Midland Parkway. This significant undertaking, spearheaded by the town's commitment to ensuring safe roads, has reached its final stage.

The town acknowledges that there may be some inconveniences during the final pavement marking process. Temporary lane closures and intersection work are expected to occur during, potentially causing minimal delays. The town appreciates the community's understanding and cooperation during this final phase.

History of the project:

After discussions with the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and the Dorchester County Transportation Committee (CTC), the Town secured funding for the project in May 2022 for $850,000. In November 2022, the Dorchester County Sales Tax Referendum was passed by voters, and Midland Parkway was identified as one of the projects to be funded by the referendum.

In December 2022, the Town and SCDOT agreed on the most effective solution for Midland Parkway, which was to completely reconstruct the road. The construction costs were estimated to be approximately $2 million, and Dorchester County agreed to fund the remainder of the construction costs with sales tax referendum proceeds.

Construction bids for the Midland Parkway Reconstruction Project were received on February 23, 2023, and the project was awarded to Banks Construction Co. Construction and began in the Spring of 2023.

The Town of Summerville remains committed to ongoing infrastructure enhancements to ensure safe and efficient transportation for all residents.
