SAVE THE DATE! FOR THE I-26ALT PRESENTATION OF FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS
For the past 18 months, the BCDCOG has been studying and listening to how the region envisions an alternative mode of transportation that will alleviate traffic and increase mobility along the corridor between Charleston, North Charleston, and Summerville. After whittling down public preferences and modeling multiple options to assess funding and operational feasibility, a final round of meetings has been scheduled in the new year, where the public will be presented with short term, mid-range, and long term recommendations to make transit a viable option for the Charleston region.
Mark your calendars now to attend the meeting most convenient for you and to find out what alternative looks most feasible based on all the detailed screenings and modeling of the public’s preferences over the past few months.

If you have not been able to attend a meeting in the past, no worries there is still time to join the conversation on our online forum at http://i26alt.mindmixer.com/.
The Mindmixer website is an open and online forum which the public can access and make their voices heard. Participants on the project’s mindmixer site have discussed a number of elements related to the proposed I-26Alt.
Currently the forum is open to discussion on transit station areas and on a type of community development called Transit Oriented Development (TOD). Join the discussion of which aspects of TOD you think would be more important to consider for the station areas. You can also weigh in on which aspects, such as pedestrian and bicycle oriented design and accessibility, vibrant public spaces, or parking, you think would be of greatest value!
