Yay pedestrian/bike lanes

According to an article in last week's Post & Courier, the city wants to spend $800k for pedestrian and bicycle lanes for Highway 17 bridge that takes traffic from West Ashley into downtown Charleston.

This is fantastic news, and a much needed route for pedestrians and cyclists to commute between downtown and West Ashley. If the pedestrian/bike lanes follow the proposal outlined in a 2007 feasability study (PDF document) then it would also provide that "last mile" connection with the West Ashley Greenway.
