The Town of Summerville is studying improvements to North Maple Street from south of the Parsons Road/West Richardson Avenue intersection to the North Maple Street Extension that is being constructed as part of the Nexton Interchange Project.
The improvements include the widening of North Maple Street from two to three lanes (two travel lanes and a center turn lane) from Parsons Road to US Route 78 and widening from two to five lanes (four travel lanes and a center turn lane) from US Route 78 to the North Maple Street Extension.
The proposed improvements also include realigning Parsons Road to tie into North Maple Street at West Richardson Avenue (S-65).
The purpose of the proposed project is to improve traffic operations in order to meet future traffic demands on North Maple Street and Parsons Road.
