Food was very tasty and the atmosphere was very family-style. However it would have been nice to have an option for more than one turkey wing. It was a nice family style meal, but there was a very limited amount of food available (unless you were buddies with the chef like the table next to us was). Also, they could have made more money on beer and wine if they offered more then just a drink when you were first seated. All and all, I don't think it was really worth the money; a nice dinner out but not worth the money.

The reason there was no real bottleneck effect where the lane was removed is because actual drivers “appeared to be less aggressive when congestion occurred in the merge area” compared to their computer counterparts. So people were getting in the right lane way ahead of the lane removal and therefore sitting in a ridiculously long line to get to and across the bridge.
"Councilman Wagner says that if you don't want to pay the toll you can use another route. If that's the case then why build it at all if the routes in place work?"
If 50% of the people don't mind paying the toll for the convenience of the highway, then that means the local routes will have 50% less traffic. See how that works? The current routes are horrible and 526 will help alleviate some of that volume. This is how it works in other states with tolls. Some people don't mind the fee and drive the toll roads while others balk the tolls and stick to the local roads. But having two options reduces traffic volumes on both routes.
So in the eyes of the law, they are not legally adults until they are 18. But we are willing to let them make life-changing, adult decisions before that?
You say that like it's completely a bad thing. You can't expect things to be fixed or revitalized without money. The money has to come from somewhere. Unless you expect a handout from the government, taxes will probably go up in many areas (property, gas, luxury, etc). I realize no one wants to pay more taxes, definitely not me. But I also would like to see some work to revitalize areas of Charleston outside of the peninsula.
It's sad that the almighty dollar can win out over common sense. The high rate of erosion should be demonstrate the lack of stability for not only the roads but the home sites. If this project goes through the homeowners will be immediately crying for beach renourishment or some form of coastal protection (aka sea walls), further destroying and upsetting the natural movement of sand. This project is not and will never be viable!
