Eight people spoke during a S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) public hearing Tuesday at Camden High School (CHS) on preferred alternatives for a Broad Street “road diet” and an enforceable truck route around Camden’s downtown. Most who spoke said they were against the Broad Street changes, were disappointed more wasn’t being along Springdale Drive, or both. One man, identified as E. Reyes, said he felt Tuesday’s public hearing was futile -- that local, state and federal officials had already conferred with trucking interests and made the decision to go ahead with the project.
