Local Randomness

Or is it random localness? Either way I recently came across a handful of local stories that you may have missed and might find mildly interesting.

First is the downtown Apple Store. I heard about this a few months ago but they never gave any firm dates on when it might open. It seems the 301 King Street location (where Cumberland’s used to be) is nearing completion and rumors say it could be open next month. If you missed out on the 3G iPhone release, maybe you can pick one up next month at the downtown location.

Next up is some much needed road widening on I-26. It seems the stretch of highway from the 526 interchange to the Ashley Phosphate exit will be expanded from 3 lanes to 4. While they claim no work will be done during peak hours, the speed limit will be reduced to 45mph and all those wonderful cones and traffic barrels will undoubtedly make traveling down this stretch of road at rush hour even more joyful then it already is. Visit the project website for more detailed information.

And finally, they have begun the beach renourishment project at Wild Dunes. You may recall the hullabaloo this created last year. This issue was that local tax payers didn’t want to help pay for the renourishing of a beach that is within the private, gated community of Wild Dunes.
