Streets Division

The City of Beaufort’s Streets Division maintains the sidewalks, right-of-way, easements, and other publicly-owned open spaces. Most streets in Beaufort, though, are owned and maintained by the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT).

Report a pothole

If you see potholes in the street or see streets that need major repair, please contact SCDOT at 843-524-7255.

Report overgrown shrubs, trees, etc.

If you notice shrubs overgrowing sidewalks or tree roots breaking up roads or sidewalks, please call us at 843-525-7054.

Recent construction & updates

The City of Beaufort has recently installed approximately 20,000 linear feet of sidewalk and is currently studying the use of greenways and bike paths as a safer alternative. We are also working with the community to expand the Spanish Moss Trail from Port Royal through the City of Beaufort and eventually to near the Whale Branch River. These greenways will serve as more aesthetically pleasing pedestrian/biker thoroughfares.
