Sound barrier to shield Mt. Pleasant homes generating a fuss

Image by Mount Pleasant Department of Transportation What the town expects the wall to look like.

Some residents are delighted that the Town of Mount Pleasant plans to build a $743,000, 3,000-feet long by 10-feet tall sound barrier to shield Snee Farm residents from increasing road noise as the town widens its northern end of U.S. 17 six lanes.

But others say it's a poor use of money that will make visitors thing we're trying to hide something.

To get the rundown on the situation, hop over to The Post and Courier's story.

You do have to wonder why people would buy and build homes next to a town's main artery in the frist place.
