THREE PUBLIC MEETINGS IN SEPTEMBER TO IDENTIFY A TRANSIT SOLUTION FOR THE I-26 CORRIDOR

BCDCOG Releases Details for I-26ALT Project Public Meetings


Charleston, SC: The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) will hold three public meetings this month to gather input for its “I-26ALT” study (www.i26alt.org). “I-26ALT” is a 20-year plan to enhance regional mobility with transit that will provide service along the I-26 Corridor connecting Summerville, North Charleston, and Charleston.

Three events will be held in September to involve the public in the selection of the most viable transit alternative for the I-26ALT study area. Study team members will present results of the first round of the alternatives analyzed and will provide opportunities for the community to comment on the alternatives selected to move forward into a second more detailed screening.
