Read the first time February 4, 1992.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4328), to direct the Department of Highways and Public Transportation to utilize Alternative B or D for implementing the Anderson Bypass, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
SAMUEL R. FOSTER, for Committee.
TO DIRECT THE DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO UTILIZE ALTERNATIVE B OR D FOR IMPLEMENTING THE ANDERSON BYPASS AND ANDERSON-ABBEVILLE CONNECTOR ROUTES WHICH WILL USE EXISTING STATE HIGHWAY 29 TO CONNECT WITH UNITED STATES INTERSTATE 85.
Whereas, the Anderson Bypass and the Anderson-Abbeville Connector are integral components of the State Highway Improvement Plan; and
Whereas, the projects will serve transportation needs and improve travel opportunities throughout the State; and
Whereas, a primary objective is to determine the best corridor for the bypass and connector facilities to deliver maximum traffic service and create minimum development impact; and
Whereas, numerous economic benefits will be derived from the project including equal opportunity to access regional hospital and emergency care facilities, educational institutions, shopping, civic arenas, and social and cultural opportunities; and
Whereas, two types of roadway improvements have been considered in the study: one to build a new controlled access facility and one to upgrade an existing highway; and
Whereas, during these economically depressed times the most cost-efficient method is to use the existing highway; and
Whereas, the department has a proposal, Alternative B or D, which will accomplish the objectives of utilizing the existing highway and being fiscally responsible by employing resources efficiently in improving the highway instead of expending greater sums to build a new highway thereby abandoning a viable highway; and
Whereas, the proposal presented at public forum workshops held on October 28 and 29, 1991, and November 4, 1991, provides for the use of an upgraded State Highway 29 to connect with Interstate 85. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the Department of Highways and Public Transportation is directed to use Alternative B or D utilizing existing State Highway 29 to connect with United States Interstate 85 instead of the proposal to build a new highway or to use State Highway 81 for the Anderson ByPass and the Anderson-Abbeville Connector.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Executive Director of the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation.
