Johns Island residents, business owners, and all of those who travel Main Road have had a tough year with natural and unnatural disasters closing the road to our homes, businesses and jobs. Business has been difficult with the road closing more in the past six months than in the collective 25-plus years that we have been in operation.

The tale of Main Road as of late has been: open, maybe, but with only one lane and definitely construction.

Fortunately, there has been a bright light in the midst of the Main Road Mishap of 2015: Sanders Brother Construction. Crews worked efficiently, day and night (weather permitting), and completed repairs with little impact to surrounding businesses and minimizing any additional traffic delays.

So, Sanders Brothers Construction, from one business owner to another and as one driver on Main Road, I thank you for your professionalism and for doing what it takes. This is not always the case in regard to our beloved Johns Island and Main Road. Thanks to our customers for their loyal patronage and to Sanders Brothers Construction for a job well done. To the people of Johns Island — God speed, God bless, the road is open, and we hope to see you soon.
