Harden Street Corridor in Five Points Has the Most Pedestrian Accidents in South Carolina


December 07, 2020

South Carolina - According to an online news report, recent South Carolina Department of Transportation studies state that the Harden Street corridor in Five Points has the largest amount of pedestrian and bicycle accidents in South Carolina. There are many safety improvements ready to be implemented in Five Points that will improve pedestrian and bike safety. Because of those numbers, changes are being made.

Lori Campbell, a SCDOT district traffic engineer, believes that the high rates of pedestrian accidents along with the availability of federal safety funding, that any new safety improvements needed on Harden and Blossom/Devine Street in the Five Points area will be approved and completed. The safety improvements include correcting the pedestrian button signage, making the pedestrian signs easier to see at night, and traffic light backing.

According to Steven Cook, the Five Points Association president, these improvements have been wanted for a long time, and the improvements are just the beginning. Mr. Cook also stated that The Five Points Association is always looking for new opportunities to improve public safety, promote walkability, and promote pedestrian/bicycle safety. 

Seth Rose, who serves the community in the South Carolina House of Representatives, stated that the multi-million dollar investment into the area's public safety would make Five Points a more bikeable and walkable community.
