Calhoun Street Regional Dock

Project includes removal of the existing public dock and replacement with a larger and more accessible regional dock. The project will include a new bulkhead, boardwalk, covered pier head and larger floating dock capable of accommodating up to six boats.

The Calhoun Street dock improvements support an alternative regional transportation connection among local municipalities, supports economic development for Ecotourism, and contributes to the quality of life for Beaufort County residents. The improvements will also allow Palmetto Bluff to provide service between the Town dock at Palmetto Bluff and the Historic District.

Maximizing existing opportunities for public water access is an implementation step of the Comprehensive Plan.


  • A new dock permit application will be submitted for review in August 2019. Proposed dock uses and regulations have been presented to Town Council for consideration. An Ordinance to adopt the proposed uses and regulations will be considered in late summer. Construction is now proposed for the fall of 2019.


  • The project has completed the design phase. Town Staff is working on proposed use and parking regulations to respond to adjacent property owners input.  Proposed use and parking regulations will be presented at the December Town Council meeting for Town Council review and/or approval.  Pending Town Council approval, the construction is now expected to begin in the winter of 2019.


  • This project is currently in the design and permitting phase. Permit applications have been submitted and are under review by SCDHEC and USACOE.

Pending Town Council approval and obtaining approval of the dock permit, the construction is expected to begin in late fall of 2018.


  • This project is in the design and permitting phase with construction expected to begin in the fall of 2018.
