December 9th — the Town of Mt. Pleasant broke ground on one of the more ambitious projects in the towns nearly 400 year history. The much anticipated rode widening of Highway 17 from the foot of the Ravenel Bridge(downtown Charleston) to 1-526, the widening of 17 north from the Isle of Palms connector to Wando High School and numerous other inroad projects has begun.
This is a really exciting time for Mt. Pleasant. If you do much research about the USA’s best cities, Mt. Pleasant is in the mix of most conversations.
