South Carolina Transportation

With the federal government poised to dole out billions in new public works funding, it is a good time to take a look at what type of projects might benefit our state.

We could of course do the usual and spend the money on automobile infrastructure- roads, bridges and the like. Money definitely needs to be put into this, but we also need to look into the future and think big. It is time to start thinking world class for our state.

Now would be a good time to take a look at building a large, state-of-the-art airport, centrally located in the state, perhaps around the intersection of I-95 and I-26. Call it South Carolina National, if you will. This central hub to be connected to the rest of the state with five high speed passenger rail lines to Florence/Myrtle Beach, Columbia/Greenville/Spartenburg, Aiken/North Augusta, Rock Hill, and Charleston.

Such an infrastructure would be attractive to global business and would do a lot towards making South Carolina into a world class state.

  1. With the coming collapse of the airline industry, South Carolina could do worse.
