Since 2015, four community members have been killed as they biked over the North Bridge between Azalea Drive in North Charleston and Poston Road in West Ashley. In addition to these fatalities, six people on bike or foot have been injured on the bridge since 2013. We did not have to lose Christopher Oliver, James Burgess, Tommy Dixon or Jae Bellamy — their deaths were entirely preventable through safe, connected and equitable infrastructure.
