Cyclists want lanes on Maybank

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC)  - A group of cyclists is pleading with the South Carolina Department of Transportation to make parts of James Island more biker friendly.

The resurfacing project on James Island's Maybank Highway is currently underway and the group Charleston Moves, a nonprofit group advocating smart city planning and alternative forms of transportation, wants the road to be re-striped at the end to give bikers ample room to ride safely.

In just five days, Charleston Moves collected nearly 2,000 signatures on their petition asking for bike lanes on parts of Maybank Highway.

The group says by shrinking the lanes down from 12 feet to ten-and-a-half feet would allow for a four-foot bike lane on each side of the highway. The group already has support from Charleston mayor Joe Riley, who has been working hard to make Charleston a certified bike friendly city.
