Despite the headaches and aggravations of road construction around this area, we are pleased to see that the Santee-Lynches Council of Governments recently agreed to pony up some $4.2 million to help pay for much needed road improvements in the area between Black River Road and I-20/Exit 98. Projected growth in that area over the next decade is tremendous; already Black River Road itself is crowded and becoming more dangerous by the day. And, with industrial additions, new subdivisions, and of course, the new Central Carolina Technical College and Woolard Technology Center campuses (Woolard will replace ATEC), the situation in that area will only become even more congested and dangerous if nothing is done.
