Columbia Mayor Discusses Referendum To Relieve Traffic

(Columbia, SC)  --  Columbia residents could get to decide how to solve a recurring problem downtown. 

In his State of the City address yesterday, Mayor Steve Benjamin said he'll propose a referendum that could stop trains from stopping on the tracks and causing traffic tie-ups on Assembly Street.  

Benjamin says train traffic is up 800-percent, and he'll ask the DOT to work on a solution.  If they can't find one, Benjamin tells WIS 10 News he'll ask voters to approve a 70-million dollar rail flyover.
