Council talks widening of Atomic Road
Plans are moving ahead for the widening and improvement of East Buena Vista Avenue and Atomic Road, in the wake of Monday's North Augusta City Council meeting, which included a 5-0 vote in favor of an agreement to work on the project with the S.C. Department of Transportation.
Skip Grkovic, a consultant to the municipal government on transportation issues, noted that the project involves three segments, with draining improvements as a major part of the package. One is East Buena Vista Avenue, from Atomic Road to near Brookside Drive, near the North Augusta Department of Public Safety's headquarters.
Improvements in curb and gutter facilities are planned, as are sidewalks, bike lanes and a side trail, similar to the one in place on Knox Avenue.
In the section of Atomic Road from East Buena Vista Avenue to Martintown Road, similar changes will be enacted and the roadway will be slightly narrowed, with the aim of calming traffic, Grkovic said.
The third segment, including Atomic Road from Martintown Road to Old Edgefield Road, will be widened, due to its commercial nature. Hopes are for better turning movements, especially at the Old Edgefield intersection.
The meeting also included three other 5-0 votes. One was for the first and second readings of an ordinance to annex a half-acre tract at 33 Carolina Springs Spur; and another was to approve a deed of dedication for a development face in Wando Woodlands.
The third was to approve several reappointments: James Gay to the Building Codes Board of Adjustments and Appeals; Jim Newman and Kathie Stallworth, both to the Board of Zoning Appeals; and Joe Bickley, to the Recreation and Parks Advisory Commission.
