GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Greenville residents know there are problems, but they are worried about a project to deal with the interchange involving Interstate 85 and I-385.
Residents worry about noise and gridlock from the construction of new highway lanes and access ramps.
About 75 people attended a public hearing Thursday on the $245 million dollar project
About 200,000 vehicles pass through the interchange every day.
Transportation Department program manager Tommy Elrod says only the intersection of I-26 and I-526 in Charleston has a higher priority for interchange work in South Carolina.
George Scott says his property is 50 feet from I-85 now and the project would bring it closer. He worries his property value will drop.
The transportation department says the preferred plan involves 20 acres and would displace two businesses.
