As I mentioned before, Charleston County is at a crossroads. With little funding from our state, we need funds to work on our existing roads such as Dorchester Road, Glenn McConnell Parkway, Folly Road and JI Connector, Savannah Highway, Hwy 17 and Main Road, Rural Roads, Hwy 78 and Hwy 41. Only a few days left for your voice to be heard!
