James Island council to discuss I-526 project

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - James Island's town council meeting will be held Tuesday night and the Interstate 526 completion project is on the agenda.

Mayor Bill Woolsey has submitted a resolution that says the town supports Charleston County's efforts to re-negotiate the inter-governmental agreement to allow new project alternatives including those that are less expensive and don't extend to James Island.

The resolution also says the town holds on to the right to approve or reject any alternative that crosses town limits.

Last week the State Infrastructure Bank gave the Charleston County Council the right to do what it wants with the I-526 project.

A letter from the bank states that Charleston doesn't need to pay back nearly $12 million to the state, at least not now.
