Consider This: Start Building I-73 Now

Posted: Updated:

During Governor Nikki Haley's recent visit she threw her support behind I-73. And Congressman Tom Rice says we could see permits issued next spring. It looks like we're closer than ever to seeing I-73 become a reality.

Consider This:

There has been study after study on the proposed interstate and they all show the benefits of the highway. We'll see tourism growth, better recruitment potential for new industry, lots and lots of construction jobs to build the highway and faster, safer hurricane evacuation routes. Environmental groups have delayed this project long enough. It's time to move on. Widening Highway 501 isn't the answer. It's time to end that discussion.

It's time to start moving dirt and start construction for I-73.
