EXPECTED TO EASE TRAFFIC CONGESTION, BUT CRITICS SAY PLAN WON'T SOLVE PROBLEMS
A crucial step is on the horizon in the area’s effort to replace aging bridges leading to Hilton Head Island and ease traffic congestion that clogs the roadways.
Officials are hoping by early next year to hear which of the construction alternatives proposed for the $272 million project is preferred, according to Craig Winn, SCDOT project manager. But that announcement may not be the final word. Concerned island residents are pushing for an individual review of the traffic issues to ascertain whether all issues have been addressed.
