Final public meeting set to review multi-modal transportation plan


 The public is invited to weigh in Tuesday night on a new multi-modal transportation plan released by the South Carolina Department of Transportation. 

The last of seven public meetings to review SCDOT's five year draft regarding a makeover of the state's roadways and rail system will be held in the multi-purpose room at Daniel Island School from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

According to the Department of Transportation, South Carolina is the fourth largest state maintained road system in the nation. DOT officials say the state will need $70 billion over the next five years for highway, freight, rail, and cycling improvements. 

Public transit advocates are providing free transportation for anyone who wants to attend the DOT meeting.

A bright red shuttle bus will be providing free rides to and from the CARTA stop on Cosgrove Ave. in North Charleston. They'll be running from about 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
