I recently had my first trip on the bridge over the Ashley River at 9:30 a.m. since one lane has been blocked off for bicycles.

This was supposed to only delay traffic for seven seconds, but it actually delayed me eight minutes and caused me to be late.

Traffic on Folly Road and traffic merging onto the bridge from Highway 17 and Highway 61 was bumper-to-bumper. And the county is prepared to spend $2 million for this debacle? I must be missing something.
