Greetings from Charleston
« on: July 18, 2017, 09:21:05 PM »

Hello! My name is Joe. I am a 25 year old native of Charleston, SC, and a long time message board reader and poster. I have always been interested in road signs, traveling, and maps, and I have been very interested in reading many of the posts over the past few days.

It is a very fast-growing metro area with a population which has grown from 500K to almost 800K since the year 2000.

Welcome from Dalton, Georgia. I have been to your neck of the woods on vacation back at the beginning of June. I will say it was interesting seeing the overt signs of metro growth, such as seeing progress on what I found out was called to be the Sheep Island Rd. Interchange, along with maybe a possible widening of I-26 through there. Charleston is such a nice place, and it's got some nice roads and bridges. I got lots of road pictures and videos from that trip, that when I ever get the chance, I will have uploaded on the internet for all to see. Sorry for going on a positive rant about where you live, but I just loved the place so much!  :D

See ya on the forums.  :wave:

Welcome to the board.

Have you followed the support I-526 efforts to complete the route across James Island? There is a Facebook page about it and posts routinely show that while needed, the freeway continues to be ignored when it comes to funding.

Yep. I am a supporter of it. But there are a lot of NIMBYs in my area that don't want it, or want bike and pedestrian corridors with it.
