Press Release
Today, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) announced that the "Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users " (H.R. 3) designates $10 million for improvements to Highway 278 over five years. The bill passed the U.S. House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and is awaiting action on the House Floor. “I am grateful for the Committee’s decision to increase funding for Highway 278,” said Wilson. “Collisions on this highway have increased by 9% over the past seven years. As the primary evacuation route for the Hilton Head area, this road must be safe and convenient for everyone who travels on it. Providing funding to improve Highway 278 will remain my first transportation priority.” ###
