Fixing Our Roads and Improving Traffic

The General Assembly has until June to pass a roads funding bill or we will have to start from scratch in 2017. I have made this issue a top priority throughout my service in the legislature. I am working with both parties to pass a smart roads plan this year that fixes our crumbling roads, reforms DOT, and makes sure Charleston receives its fair share of funds back home.

  • Finish 526: Leon secured the $420 million for I-526 in 2006 and special interests have stood in the way of the project for too long. I will continue fighting for this project so that residents in West Ashley and the Islands have an alternative route to and from work and a safe evacuation route
