MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A state representative with ties to the Lowcountry has sent a letter to South Carolina Department of Transporation Secretary Christy Hall concerning the Wando Bridge.
District 99 rep. Nancy Mace, who represents part of Berkeley and Charleston counties, submitted the letter Wednesday. She won a special election for the seat back in January.
In her letter, she lists 14 questions for SCDOT officials
My questions for SCDOT are as follows:
Mace also expressed concern about the economic impact on the Wando Terminal. Mace also made headlines in March when she released a statement firing back at Shannon Faulkner over her claim that she feels like a graduate of The Citadel.
The SCDOT ordered a 48-hour shutdown of the James B. Edwards Bridge, commonly referred to as the Wando Bridge Monday afternoon. That decision followed the discovery of a snapped cable in the structure of the bridge during a routine inspection.
Only the westbound lanes were affected; the eastbound lanes remained open.
