Boundary Street: ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’
I’m in agreement with a recent writer about the Boundary Street redevelopment. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and the intersection of S.C. 170 and Boundary ain’t broke. Spend all that money on other road projects or maintenance. I would be glad to compile a list of roads, intersections old rail crossings that need attention and fixing.
Our DOT is mandated with moving traffic, but all of the recent projects in our area do nothing but constrict traffic flow: the Bladen Street project, the medians in Port Royal that closed a few businesses, the constriction of traffic from Charles Street to Bellamy curve. Let’s do the best with what we got and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Boundary Street redevelopment costly
I have owned a business on Boundary Street for more than 30 years now. Mayor Keyserling, his family and City Council members love Beaufort. I know that. I do not understand why they are so completely bent on spending millions of dollars that no entity has to spare to make a traffic situation much worse.
