Let’s move forward to build the I-526 extension much needed for traffic control and convenience as well as for an essential evacuation route.

There are ways to finance the excess amount over what the state has allocated.

Add to what already has been considered a half percent dedicated sales tax: privatizing with long-term tax-free municipal revenue bonds, which the city can sell. That process has worked in Kentucky for privatizing municipal water systems.

We’ve been hearing lots about West Ashley but little about the I-526 extension, Mayor Tecklenburg, are you listening and remembering your campaign promises?
