Ashley River Road needs your comments by October 9

October 2, 2019

The magnificent, oak draped Ashley River Road that we have all known and loved is now threatened with a South Carolina Department of Transportation resurfacing and widening plan for the Dorchester County portion of the road that may forever change its rural and historic character. Both the Ashley River Road and the broader Ashley River Historic District are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
