A recent letter posed the question: “So, why not the Arthur Ravenel Sweetgrass Skyway?”

I was disappointed that plain concrete, without any color, was chosen as the finish for the towers. It seemed such a missed opportunity.

Why not paint the towers to look like handles of sweet- grass baskets? The cables would look like individual strands of sweetgrass coming from them.

I still think an Arthur Ravenel-Sweetgrass Skyway is a great idea.
