Lexington County, SC — As Lexington residents who use Corley Mill Road to travel to work are aware, grading work for River Bluff High School began three to four years ago, and we have watched with increasing concern as the buildings and massive sports complex have gone up with three entrances to Corley Mill Road. That concern has been exacerbated by the evident lack of planning for dealing with the traffic the school will cause beginning Aug. 19.
Now we are starting to see a smattering of articles in The State with the Transportation Department realizing that it really needs to do something — with less than two months to go. I always try to see a situation from both sides, but it is virtually impossible to understand why the roads were not planned before the very first shovel of dirt was disturbed for this project.
