I-73's economic impact in Marlboro County

Jul 18, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WPDE TV

“The county itself will be exposed. The geographic location will be exposed... as visitors pull off to get that last gas tank, or that last drink before they get to the beach.”

With a stretch of the proposed Interstate 73 planned directly through Marlboro County, some business owners say it will help an area that ranks among the highest in the state for unemployment. via WPDE TV

What do some of you other marlboro county people think about I-73

I just turned 50 so it may not have an impact on my life.I'll probably be in a retirement home by the time it's finished.

The interstate; taxes go up, crime goes up, pollution increases, conjestion, etc..Who pays for the maintainence (you). So you want it, you pay the burden. All that noise pollution. Where's all the Democrats who follow Al Gore and his ideas? Oh, they r the ones who R pushing the I-73 project,(excuse me). Does an Interstate cause Green-house Effect? I say Nay, to I-73! Work with what U have, and like U taught us, don't go into debt, if U can't afford it don't buy it.
