Local Spotlights:   NACTO has landed.

Within the past 2 years, Greenville, Columbia, and Spartanburg  decided they would do something unique in how they design their streets.  Unique to the entire state of South Carolina, so far. And they did it.   They changed some street designs in a way SCDOT isn't ready for them to do. Two of these three are on city owned streets, so they achieved it pretty quickly, and the last one is partially on a state owned street, so is taking a little longer to happen.  Since  public streets are any city's largest real estate holding, it's a big deal when a city does something unique to its streets.  We spend so much of our public life in our streets, so we always notice when changes are made to them. Each of these changes are not yet SCDOT approved designs (we aim now to change that), but they are endorsed by the Federal Highway Administration, and initially created by NACTO (National Association of City Transportation Officials).  We simply think this is awesome. Thanks for the inspiration.
