From our friends at CHARLESTON MOVES…
Better North Bridge Meeting
Wednesday, December 15
Drop in from 4-7 pm
Lowcountry Food Bank (2864 Azalea Drive, North Charleston 29405)
Charleston County is hosting a public information meeting, during which you can learn about the Better North Bridge project and provide input on potential route alignments for a separate bicycle and pedestrian bridge and multi-use path connection. It will be a drop-in format from 4-7 pm on Wednesday, December 15 at the Lowcountry Food Bank (2864 Azalea Drive). Please mark your calendar to stop in, weigh in, and show your support for a safe, equitable crossing.
After the meeting, the County will continue to collect input from the community until January 29. We will share all the ways for you to participate, including our neighborhood tabling sessions, as we get closer to the December 15 drop-in.
The existing North Bridge crossing between West Ashley and North Charleston is a wedge in our community. One that not only puts people’s lives at risk on a daily basis, but also informs life expectancy, financial stability, educational opportunities and quality of life for so many in our community. We are committed to pushing a safe, equitable, connected and accessible fix forward.
Public input will inform the selected alternative, which in turn, will position the County to develop a 2022 federal RAISE grant application, while Charleston Moves, the municipalities and agencies continue coordination around other funding sources to get the Better North Bridge constructed as quickly as possible. Every day that goes by is another day that our neighbors lives are in danger.
Make sure to mark your calendar to show up and speak up in support of a new bike/ped bridge, and to let the County know which route you prefer!
