Charleston County Council votes to build I-526

Instead of passing the road project to the City of Charleston, on Thursday night Charleston County Council voted to build the much-debated I-526 section through Johns and James islands.

The vote was 5-4.

Many reports abound, but I'll point you to Live 5 News' report, which states in part:

It was a close vote, but council voted yes to finishing the controversial project after a nearly four-hour long meeting Thursday night. 

The game changers in council were Anna Johnson and Herb Sass, who didn't really give an indication before the vote which way they were going. Ultimately, both voted in favor of the project, along with Vic Rawl, Elliott Summey and Teddie Pryor.
