Cyclists will have to wait on James Island connector opening
Legislation passed this year allowed the city of Charleston to open the James Island connector to legal biking again.
But don’t expect it to happen any time soon.
A city official said this week there first needs to be a study to determine if it can be done safely.
Right now the city doesn’t have the money for such a study.
That means it might not be until after next year’s budget passes in December before a study can go forward.
“The prudent thing to do is a safety assessment,” Hernan Pena, Charleston’s Traffic and Transportation director, said.
