CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Officials will continue discussing the future of I-526 at a Charleston County Council meeting Tuesday.

Last week, the County finance committee voted to approve up to half a million dollars from a sales tax fund for permits for the project.

The I-526 completion project is set to cost $720 million. With $420 million set aside for the project, the county needs to come up with an additional $300 million to pay for it.  

If completed, the interstate would extend from West Ashley onto James and Johns islands. 

The council meeting will be held at the Lonnie Hamilton, III Public Services Building at 6:30 p.m. Live 5 News will have the latest after the meeting is over.
