Good time to be in the road-building racket.$17M available and only $180K for "mass-transit". So, if you are too old, too young or too poor to drive, you don't matter. We have NO convenient passenger train service and no regional bus service at-all. I would call the Best Friends bus service more-than "shovel-ready". If they would be amenable to adding routs THEY should get a lot more of this 'pork'. Cars whizzing by on I-20 will not bring $17M to Aiken county. This money should do more to help the citizens of Aiken county, not just fill the pockets of construction companies.

Doesnt gas, and or road taxes that I already pay for cover this? Where does that money go? Are taxpayers paying for something twice? Someone enlighten me please.

Where are the re-paved roads at? Its been almost a year now, and the potholes, dips and other abberations have beat the piss out of my can and I need new shocks yet again.
On a side note, have you ever noticed that Sears here never has a "lifetime warranty" special on their shocks?
