Is I-3 Necessary? by clintmurphy

With news today that the proposed route for Interstate 3 is being discussed, it made me think back to the highway when it was originally proposed by Congressman Max Burns in 2002. 

I believe that there can be a case made for a Savannah River Parkway connecting Savannah and Augusta, and perhaps a connector to Athens and perhaps a tie in to I-85 too, but much past there and it would appear to be a diminishing return on investment.

With oil prices as high as they are and transportation funds scarce as they appear to be, there is going to have to be a needs based formula in determining what gets funded and what does not.

it would be nice to have a direct inland route for port traffic that does not involve 1st using 95 or heading through atl. the route to greenville seems reasonble–knoxville was better b/c it got trucks to I40
