CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The State Infrastructure Bank Board is scheduled to set a deadline for Charleston County to fund the I-526 extension.

Charleston County Council Chairman Elliott Summey says he and the county attorney received a resolution the bank board is expected to pass Tuesday.

That resolution would give Charleston County until the end of March to figure out how to come up with $353 million for the extension of I-526 onto James and Johns Islands.

If the county is unable to come up with the money by the deadline, the SIB can release the money it set aside for the project after 60 days, which would put the project in jeopardy.
