BCD COG Releases Final Proposal for I-26 ALT Project at Public Meetings 

i-26ALT RELEASING TRANSIT ALTERNATIVE RECOMMENDATION AT PUBLIC MEETINGS NEXT WEEK

BCDCOG Releases Final Proposal for i-26ALT Project at Public Meetings

Charleston, SC: The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) is holding three public meetings next week to reveal its recommendation for the region’s first fixed guideway transit system proposal and to review findings of the i-26ALT study (www.i26alt.org) leading to this recommendation. “i-26ALT” is a 20-year plan to enhance regional mobility with a premium transit alternative that will provide service along the I-26 Corridor connecting Summerville, North Charleston, and Charleston.

Three presentations will divulge details of the recommended transit mode and alignment (or route) of the most viable transit alternative to service the i-26ALT study area. Study team members will present results of the second screening of all the alternatives analyzed and will provide opportunities for the community to comment on the recommended project before moving forward with an application to the Federal Transit Administration’s Capital Investment Grant Program. If selected for the program, the recommended project could be breaking ground within the next five years.
