Shouldn't the title read North Charleston assembled ? The parts are produced around the world and put together by the workers here in Charleston. Not knocking the fine work they do just trying clarify. Wouldn't want the City Paper to be accused of "fake news".
Please explain how if there was no real bottleneck effect at the point of where the lane was removed how the traffic backups on Maybank and supposedly SamRitt can be blamed on lane closure?
Yes the study was flawed. The lane should have been opened for use not only to see how many users but also to see the effects of less cars.
As for the 3 to 5 minute claim could you please post link as to were that info can be found.
The real traffic delays during evac are on I-26 ( and every day for that matter ) not on the islands. Spend the money on fixing I-26.
Let's see if I have this straight - council not willing to spend $3 million on pedestrian lane that will only cost car drivers :45 seconds in commute time but are pushing for spending upwards of $700 million to extend I-526 that will only save drivers :90 seconds of commute time ( not to mention the $500,000 just to restart the process )
Vote Gary Johnson. 15% of popular vote will get libertarian party invite to next presidential debates.
Hey Timmonsville now please ban jorts, visors and sleeveless shirts. Their 'fad' has run its course as well.
