Work on Williams Lane/Foster Creek road project will begin Monday, January 29

(Information was obtained from the Berkeley County School District website on capital projects)

Those living in the area of Bowen’s Corner Elementary School (currently under construction) in Hanahan will soon notice work along the roadways in the area.

Crews will begin working to clear debris and trees in the area of Williams Lane and Foster Creek on Monday, January 29. That work is expected to be complete in about seven days, and work to relocate underground piping and utilities will follow. The work is part of the school construction project, which includes the eventual construction of a roundabout at the intersection of the two roads.

Lane and road closures are not anticipated, but there may be some necessary traffic control at times as trucks and equipment move in and out of the area.


It’s expected all road work related to the school’s construction will be completed during the summer of 2018.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to grow Berkeley County School District.

Vehicle Break-In’s

In 2017, there were 112 vehicle break-in incidents reported to the Hanahan Police Department. Over 90% of these reported incidents involved criminals rummaging through or stealing property from unlocked vehicles; there were also many police reports filed for firearms being stolen from vehicles. This is concerning since it is very common for a stolen firearm to be used in the commission of a violent crime, not only in our city, but in other jurisdictions, as well.

The police department is asking citizens to please make sure you are locking your vehicle when it is not in use. People who leave their vehicle unlocked greatly increase the odds of becoming a victim of a property crime. Be sure not to leave any valuables, such as cell phones, money, garage door openers, or keys in plain view. This creates crimes of opportunity. We also cannot stress enough the importance of removing firearms from your vehicle.

One of the core principals of community-oriented policing is a partnership between law enforcement and those they serve. If you ever hear or see something that seems suspicious, please call 911 immediately, so a police officer can investigate.
