CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) – The expansion of I-526 is now getting the green light from Charleston County leaders.

Charleston County Council voted seven to two to approve the contract with the State Infrastructure Bank in a meeting on Thursday night. This now means that both sides can move forward in funding, planning and building the roadway on James’ and John’s Island.

This is an estimated $725-million dollar project.
