Best Project That May or May Not Happen

West Ashley Bridge Bike Lane

Staff Pick

Pretty much everyone agrees that non-drivers need a better way to travel downtown from West Ashley and James Island. But there seems to be little agreement on how best to accomplish that. There was a glimmer of hope last year though, when Charleston City Council narrowly reaffirmed its commitment to converting a lane of the inbound bridge into a bike and pedestrian lane. But since then, that plan seems to have settled in a silent intergovernmental morass. One thing is clear, the project has no obvious strong support from the county or the city. We’ll see. Until then, be careful out there. —Sam Spence
