KBS was the prime consultant selected to develop a gateway Master Plan to the Cannonborough district.

Located in this district are, Spring & Cannon Streets. These were previously one-way parallel corridors connecting the Cross-town and the Ashley River Bridges to Upper King Street in downtown Charleston. As a traffic calming benefit, the design team proposed converting the traffic pattern from one way to two way. The design team was responsible for public meetings, perspective renderings, preliminary designs, surveys, traffic signalization/control plans, electrical designs, permitting, contract documents/specifications, bidding assistance & construction administration.
