Forest City plans for new roads

By Senior Airman Jared Trimarchi Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

Forest City Military Communities has announced a street revitalization and pavement improvement project that is scheduled to begin in April 2015, at Joint Base Charleston, S.C.

The project's purpose is to enhance the quality of life for service members and their families who live in base housing on the air base. 

"All roads with new homes will be milled and repaved to fix any cracks and to enhance the appearance of the neighborhood," said Alison Pack, Forest City community manager. "Sidewalks and curbs will also be worked on."

Although no dates or road names have been finalized, Forest City's top priority is to notify their residents as soon as the information becomes available.

"As April approaches we will inform our residents through personal email, our website and Facebook to ensure they are well aware of any closures to minimize the impact of the project," Pack said.

According to Steve Campbell, 628th Civil Engineer Squadron housing manager, Forest City oversees privatized housing on base to include the roads and sidewalks.

"During construction operations of the new houses, normal wear and tear on roads occurred that will be repaired with this project," Campbell said. "We have been coordinating with Forest City, the 628th Security Forces Squadron and the 628th CES Fire Department to ensure the project will have a minimal impact to daily operations."

According to Pack the project should not affect the daily traffic flow of service members who commute throughout the base and will not affect those in Hunley Park.

"We are very excited to announce this project and look forward to beautifying the roads to match the new homes provided to our service members," said
