Several hundred people drifted in small groups from display to display around Camden High School’s cafeteria Tuesday night. Local government and school district officials, members of the Camden Police Department, business men and women, history proponents and Camden-area residents studied and discussed options for a proposed truck route and a “road diet” for a section of Broad Street. Representatives from the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and engineering firm URS/BP Barbour stood at each display, some on easels, some on tables, including ones hung on the tables turned up to act like walls.
