Southridge Blvd. and Mountaineer Blvd are both State Roads also!!!You see, lovely businesses like Walmart first get to use our taxpayer money to provide access and lights leading to their sh**ty stores....rather than say, build proper access and provide adequate traffic flow that should have been included in their OWN construction costs. Now Walmart expects the cops (our tax dollars) to pick up the tab because they put up these stores in a crappy way. Much like Walmart encouraging their workers to use Medicaid because they won't provide decent health insurance, they expect the city's municipalities to provide road access/control. Tax payers unite against sh**ty stores!

Okay this needs to be heard =, first of allthe only reason SCPD is out there on a contractual basis is because State Police won't direct traffic the businesses are in the city thats why SCPD will respond to the parking lots for calls but they can't just order officers to work traffic control on a state toad RHL blv., when on Average thay have only 4 officers out on shift at a time sounds like they need about 10 more officers or they should relinquish those BO taxes to Charleston who culd cover it!!!!

Well as I recall, Charleston and South Charleston was "at odds" over who was going to get to claim the shoppes in the Corridor G area, undoubtedly due to the fact there was money to be had from taxation, it appears South Charleston won, so let them get their officers out there and help alleviate the traffic problems.

Again, the government pays billions in development in almost every county to purchase land, lay out utilities pave roads. Then they rent that property out to businesses. The state also provides access to roads where businesses are located, just like Corridor G. After all, they could have just put a guardrail along the shops and no one could enter. The state is in the business of allowing, and even helping business to prosper, which mean the state prospers. This SAME state refused to widen the road running through Cross Lanes for 30 years! In the mean time, Teays Valley already had 3 lanes. It's the state holding back progress.
