Residents, Officials Talk About East-West Connector Plans

Posted:
By Anderson Independent-Mail

Community members and leaders came together at the Anderson County Library Wednesday night to discuss plans for the East-West Connector.

According to our coverage partners at the Anderson Independent-Mail, Anderson County Planning Director Bill West told the crowd that the corridor is intended to serve as a reminder to policymakers that the people living nearest the connector want the neighborhood to keep its residential character. But he warned that the plan for the residential corridor could change with any election tide.

The Independent-mail reports that about 70 people showed up to the meeting, including some who fought the connector idea 10 years ago, and fought harder this year when they learned it could.

Anderson County Council approved creating a residential corridor in September, several weeks after a local transportation committee voted to accept $4 million in federal stimulus money to double the lanes in the connector. The three-mile road will connect Clemson Boulevard to S.C. 81.
