To address comments from the June 12, 2021 meeting, two other conceptual exhibits were developed for the one-way option around the “Loop”
“LOOP” TRAFFIC OPERATIONS/FLOW:
At the Thomas Lawton Drive/Alljoy Road one-way intersection, Thomas Lawton Drive and the one-way segment are stop-controlled, and Alljoy Road two-way segment is free-flow. Residents have stated there are operation issues when the boat landing is busy and traffic will queue on the one-way segments. They also discussed safety issues with vehicles taking the 1st curve too fast.
Alljoy Rd Conceptual and Alljoy Rd Conceptual_Alt1: At the Thomas Lawton Drive/Alljoy Road one-way intersection, it is recommended to convert this intersection to a 3-way stop, if it meets SCDOT’s criteria. Eastbound Alljoy Road traffic would be converted to stop-controlled. This would provide an opportunity for traffic on the other roads to make their turns.
Alljoy Rd Conceptual_Alt 2: It is recommended to convert this intersection to a 3-way stop, if it meets SCDOT’s criteria. By reversing the traffic flow on the “Loop”, it allows for improved traffic flow into and out of the boat landing and would improve operations at the proposed 3-way stop.
BOAT TRAFFIC ON THE “LOOP”:
If an option is selected, the curves and the intersection would be evaluated using vehicle-turn templates for boat traffic traveling through the “Loop”, and improvements designed, if needed.
