The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) invites the public to attend the Alternatives Public Information Meeting to learn more about alternatives being considered for the Carolina Crossroads I-20/26/126 Corridor Project. The meeting will be held:
October 4, 2016
5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Seven Oaks Elementary School
2800 Ashland Rd. Columbia, SC
Interested parties may attend the meeting anytime between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. A formal presentation will be given at 5:30 p.m. Maps showing the Preliminary Alternatives and the results of a two-level screening process will be available for public review and the project team will be available to discuss the project process.
"Public participation is critical to the project's success," said Project Manager Brian Klauk. "We encourage commuters to attend and drive the conversation by providing their feedback."
Parking is available on the south entrance of the school. Additional parking will be available across the street at the Columbia Crossroads Church, 2723 Ashland Road.
Located in the heart of South Carolina, the I-20, I-26 and I-126 intestate corridor is the crossroads of the state economy and serves as the major hub for the Midlands' commuters, travelers, and commerce. In addition to being a main route in and out of Columbia, I-26 is a thoroughfare for travelers headed to the coast and mountains for recreation, and a major cargo route between Lowcountry ports and Upstate manufacturers. The Carolina Crossroads I-20/26/126 Project is the number one statewide interstate priority for South Carolina. SCDOT is driving toward a 2019 destination when a contractor will take this project to construction.
For those who are not able to attend the meeting in person, an online version of the meeting will be available from October 4 to October 19, 2016 on the project website at www.SCDOTCarolinaCrossroads.com.
