A New Way to Work - the I-526 Extension of Charleston County and more economically efficient opportunities

Charleston County plans to spend half a billion dollars on the extension of I-526. Findings show that the project will increase commute time by only 2 minutes. A New Way to Work is non-profit organization founded by concerned citizens throughout many areas surrounding the potential project. Their existence is based on monetary studies examining possible alternatives to the extension and ways that half a billion dollars can be better spent. Their theories and studies are based on the same tenants of the FlexCode.
