With the stretch of I-526 from U.S. 17 in West Ashley to North Charleston (map bellow) already jammed full and a massive Boeing facility nearly done, officials are looking for ways to increase the road's capacity without breaking the bank.

And so a pay-for-play option has been proposed: Adding new lanes that are paid for by electronic toll booths.

The Post and Courier has the story about the idea and preliminary planning; take a read here.

Also worth pointing out is that the new Intermodal Facility for CARTA buses, taxis, and trains will sit just off this stretch of I-526.
