(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- The South Carolina Department of Transporation voted 4-3 on Thursday to hold another meeting to discuss, and possibly vote on, whether to complete Interstate 526, The Post and Courier reports.
The controversial road project has been a point of contention for residents in the Lowcountry and across the state. Project supporters say the road is essential for safety and to ease traffic congestion, while those against it say it will promote development while the state has more urgent needs.
The Interstate 526 project is sponsored by Charleston County, managed by DOT and paid for by the S.C. Transportation Infrastructure Bank.
