Today, the Lowline is a vision. A vision to reclaim 1.7 miles of abandoned railway track and neglected highway corridor along the backbone of the Charleston Peninsula. A vision to transform this forgotten stretch of urban space into a centralized regional park.
The Friends of the Lowcountry Lowline are working alongside the City of Charleston to put together a plan for the space that highlights the surrounding neighborhoods, addresses city-wide flooding, and gives pedestrians and bikers a safe dedicated path.
We've completed the conceptual study - it’s your turn to get involved. Tell us what you want to see in your community. Now is the time to help bring this project to life.
Grove Street to Mt. Pleasant Street
This district embraces the neighborhoods surrounding it. Expanding under I-26, this space can become a space for many different types of active and passive recreation.
Line Street to Grove Street
This district has the opportunity for the widest areas of green space and to manage stormwater for the peninsula. These spaces can be gathering spaces for Charleston.
Calhoun Street to Line Street
This district will resemble a classic Charleston alley way. With heavy foot traffic from King and Meeting Street, this will be a narrow path with lots of activity from tourism.
