On June 14, a letter writer mistakenly wrote that I proposed a right turn lane and flashing yellow light as the remedy for safety and traffic concerns at the intersection of Riverland Drive and Central Park Road.
While I welcome any long overdue improvement to the intersection, that proposed solution belonged to Charleston County Councilwoman Jenny Honeycutt.
My preference was for a smaller version of the stoplight option, which was never presented to the public but which was designed by traffic engineer Howard Chapman at my request.
The stoplight would have taken fewer trees, cost $2 million less, been implemented faster and taken very little heirs property. Our solution was not accepted.
The letter writer was correct in that three years ago, county consultants presented three public options, which were all bad, and the dog bone design was selected by popular vote.
That vote, however, was taken before I-526 was funded. Once funded, I asked DOT officials whether a 10-year traffic standard would suffice rather than a 30-year standard since the Mark Clark was scheduled for completion within the next eight years.
Once complete, Riverland Drive will be significantly relieved of traffic. DOT agreed.
After the vote, a shortened stoplight solution became viable as opposed to the confusing dog bone proposal, which incidentally, has never been tried in South Carolina and there are very few nationwide.
Regardless, I am thankful for Ms. Honeycutt’s advocacy and council’s funding as her suggested improvements will be made quickly and the new sidewalks will be a fabulous addition.

During state budget decisions, there was no consideration for expanding Medicaid, which reflects the partisan-driven intransigence of Gov. Henry McMaster.
That means 200,000 low-income adults will remain in the coverage gap, ineligible for traditional Medicare or the premium subsidy features of the Affordable Care Act. The state leaves an enormous amount of federal funds on the table.
Under recent stimulus legislation, South Carolina could receive about $800 million, paid over two years, if the governor chooses to expand Medicaid.
This exceeds the cost to provide coverage to those 200,000 individuals for at least four years, and the federal government would provide all but 10% of the cost of covering them thereafter, a state obligation that would be less than 1% of the current budget.
Many expansion states have saved 50% or more of their cost by using federal dollars on programs where the state was responsible for 100% of the cost.
It would improve the situation with medical debt and bankruptcies, shore up rural hospitals under stress for having to provide uninsured care, lower mortality rates and enable preventive care for this population segment.
The state will receive $8.9 billion in pandemic relief funds, which the governor is trying to determine how to spend.
Add this to the potential $800 million Medicaid expansion windfall and there is no longer any good faith argument that the state cannot afford expansion.

I suggest that state lawmakers pass a law that every time a driver is caught talking on a cellphone or texting, the offender would be fined $100.
And for each time charged and convicted, the driver’s fine would increase another $100. (Texting while driving already is illegal in S.C. but carries a lesser fine for first-time offenders.)
When the fine reaches $1,000, the person would lose the use of the phone in the car for a year with another harsh fine.
There are far too many accidents caused by drivers who are talking on the phone or texting while the vehicle is in motion. I would like to see more driving and fewer accidents. Just drive, follow the rules and get to where you are going safely.

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - People who live on Johns Island and community groups are weighing in on the city’s proposal to raise funs to finance infrastructure projects.
The Municipal Improvement District is a form of tax assessment, according to City of Charleston Director of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability Robert Summerfield.
He says this assessment would be taken from future developments, not existing homes or properties, and the money would go to projects only on Johns Island.
The Johns Island Task Force, which is an alliance between several community organizations on the island, just sent a letter to Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg in support of the project but with some recommendations.
The task force is urging officials to use those funds to create a “framework of civic activity,” instead of many individual and isolated projects. Some of the recommendations listed in the Johns Island Task Force letter include an Island Center for community activities, a network of roads parallel to Maybank, and a CARTA bus route along Maybank.
Summerfield said officials are happy to get the feedback.
“[The Johns Island Task Force,] not only are they on board with this opportunity to raise these funds, but they’re also thinking about specific projects that in the future this money could be put toward, and that’s tremendous,” he said. “There’s nothing on this this list that’s not a potential fundable project once the MID is adopted and we start seeing some revenue from it.”
Not everyone on Johns Island is sold on the project.
“I’m not a big fan of it,” Johns Island native Thomas Legare said. “I think new homes, both in the city of Charleston and the county of Charleston, should pay some type of impact fee, but I don’t think the taxpayer or the homeowner should be the ones paying it.”
Instead, Legare said he believes homebuilders and developers should be the ones to pay a fee to fund development projects in the area.
“They’re the ones that should be adding that into the price of their homes or taking it out of their profits,” he said. “When they’re issued a building permit, they should be paying the impact fee that would go toward improving our infrastructure.”
Summerfield said community members like Legare will be able to share their opinions and concerns about the MID at the public hearing on Aug. 17.

On Johns Island, a group of residents wants Charleston County to reconsider plans to widen large swaths of Bohicket and Main roads and instead work on smaller, more targeted improvements that would save more private property and grand trees and possibly even cost less.

On Johns Island, a group of residents wants Charleston County to reconsider plans to widen large swaths of Bohicket and Main roads and instead work on smaller, more targeted improvements that would save more private property and grand trees and possibly even cost less.
Residents of Phillips, a historic East Cooper community settled more than a century ago by formerly enslaved African Americans, have fought a plan to widen S.C. Highway 41 from two to five lanes. While the residents have had some success, the county still is working with neighbors to reach a consensus on what to do next.
On James Island, county road planners and County Council members have struggled for years to agree on how best to improve the dangerous intersection where Central Park Road dead ends into Riverland Drive, as residents opposed an elongated roundabout designed to save trees because it would take too much private land.
These three examples show how much more complicated it’s getting to build or widen roads these days — especially as leaders rightly listen more closely to voices in minority, often low-income communities that traditionally have been ignored. They also demonstrate how the county must rethink its approach to transportation projects, from the traditional process that focuses on simply moving cars to one that considers the importance of quality of life and preserving the sense of place that makes the Lowcountry so special.
For instance, the county’s primary priorities for Highway 41 are to reduce automobile congestion and accommodate more traffic. Its secondary priorities are enhancing safety, minimizing neighborhood and environmental impacts and supporting other transportation modes. In fact, all those priorities should be equal. It’s the county’s overemphasis on moving cars that has bogged things down, as affected residents push back.
The situation on Johns Island has made fewer headlines but is just as instructive. Concerned about the county’s plans, a group of residents formed a nonprofit, Rational Roads for Johns Island, and hired consultants to work with the community to develop a new approach. John Zlogar, a founding member, said residents were frustrated when the county presented five alternatives for improving Bohicket Road from Maybank Highway to the Betsy Kerrison Parkway before it asked the public about its concerns.
All five alternatives involved dramatic widenings with major impacts on homes, trees and wetlands. But some mix of pull-offs, new turn lanes, roundabouts, parallel roads, added traffic enforcement and limited widening could achieve significant improvement in traffic flow while doing far less harm to the island’s rural feel. That wasn’t one of the alternatives offered up, and residents are right to question a strategy that doesn’t include more consideration for quality of life on the island.
“This road could destroy Johns Island, or it could bring it together,” Mr. Zlogar said. “Let’s sit down and define the problem, what the issues are and then come up with something better. ... You can never get everyone to agree on everything, but if we agree to the basic approach, we’ll be much better off.”
This line of thinking was advanced in a March 30 commentary on widening Highway 41 by a retired city planner from Germany, Reinhold Roedig, who now lives on Wadmalaw Island. “Doing nothing is not a solution,” he wrote. “Local and state authorities should assume responsibility for a more comprehensive approach. It must resolve the property issues in the area, mitigate the impact of increased traffic and generally improve living conditions in the community.” But that would involve more work on beautification, heirs property issues and other civic improvements often outside the county’s traditional road construction scope. “The process,” he said, “should be started with a preliminary design that provides a vision and can be discussed with all parties, private and public.”
We agree. The county’s half-cent sales tax was sold to voters primarily as congestion relief, which clearly is needed, but that important work should involve both building roads and redefining some of our most important and visible public spaces. It’s a hopeful sign that a growing number of residents recognize this and want more emphasis put on the place itself rather than simply on how much time it will take to drive through it.
