Battle over I526 continues

Battle over I526 continues

From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

Thursday the battle over the I526 completion project continues.

Dana Beach, the Executive Director of the Coastal Conservation League, will present to the DOT Commission at a workshop meeting in Columbia. His talk will include what the CCL determined are the risks the 526 extension project, inadequate and possibly illegal funding proposed by the SIB, and ideas for the reallocation in I526 funds to prioritized projects.

"I suspect that the DOT commissioners will mostly be receptive to what Dana has to say," a spokesman at the CCL told News 2.  "Mr. Beach will provide the Commissioners with options to bring more funding into the SCDOT for use on bridge replacements, interchange rebuilds and other know infrastructure priorities in the Lowcountry and beyond."

Following the workshop, the DOT commissioners will determine the state's priority list of projects.
