DOT set to discuss the study of dangerous Crosstown crosswalk

Woman who lost daughter to accident on Crosstown to address State House

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Tuesday evening, the fight continues as one mother pushes to have an overpass built at the busy Crosstown.

In June, Lynette Ranz worked to get SCDOT to do a study on that area of the road.

She's hosted a series of fundraisers and petitions and raised thousands of dollars.

State Representative Wendell Gilliard joined the effort and the two went to the statehouse.

The study was approved.

Tuesday evening, SCDOT officials will explain the process of what the study involved, how long it's expected to take and the public will have a chance to weigh-in.

In January, Ranz's 21-year-old daughter Lindsay Ranz died while on a crosswalk at the Crosstown, at Coming Street.

She was out jogging.

Since then, her mother has turned heartbreak into motivation.

That effort continues Tuesday evening.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at Nichols Chapel AME Church.

That's located at 132 Bogard Street.
