As to the roads, anyone driving any direction from Columbia on our interstate system would have to admit that it fails to encourage investment in our great state.
Try going on 1-20, and see the months-long debacle just west of Columbia. I-77 on the other side of Columbia was torn up for years. Recently I saw a 150-mile-long backup on 1-95 from the Georgia line to 1-26 and on to Columbia.
