There were 14 debris removal contractor trucks working on James Island over the weekend. A lot of progress has been made over the last week, and it's projected to take 1 more week before James Island is 100% complete. The attached map shows the debris removal zones. The following is a break-down of percentage complete. Zone JI - 95%. J2 - 60%. J3 - 75%. J4 - 75%. J5 - 60%. J6 - 85%. J7 - 95%. J8 - 70%.

At the request of County Councilman Joe Qualey, Town Councilman Troy Mullinax has placed on the Town agenda a resolution requesting that the Department of Transportation delay activation of the new traffic signal at the corner of Mikell Drive and Harborview Road. The idea is that only if a traffic study shows that it is needed will the traffic signal be turned on.
If this passes Town Council, it will go to the City of Charleston and then Charleston County. If the local governments agree, it is likely that SCDOT will agree to the delay.
In my opinion, this request should have come two years ago when the Town first approved the project. The plan presented to the Town by the Charleston County at that time included this traffic signal.
Town Council will consider this matter at our next meeting on Thursday, November 17 at 7:00. Public comment is at the beginning of our meeting.
Mayor Bill Woolsey
