The heavily traveled, and primary connector of Charlotte, Greenville and Atlanta, portion of I-85 through Gaffney, SC, is extremely dangerous.  The "chutes" require vehicles to travel for miles between two concrete barriers with no access to exit the highway.   Traffic is backed up for miles on a daily basis.  The number of lives lost in the chutes continues to increase, including three on July 15th.  

“These chutes should be called death traps,” Coroner Dennis Fowler said in a news release. “While state officials have endorsed them at 2 separate public meetings in Gaffney, I disagree with their being safe for motorists.”

“It seems none of those officials are around to ride with me to knock on the doors of next of kin to deliver the message a loved one has been killed in this maze of concrete. Something must be done immediately,” Fowler continued. “We cannot lose any more lives at the sacrifice of a road project.”

Please sign this petition asking for IMMEDIATE CHANGE on I-85 in Gaffney. Every day these chutes remain in place risks the lives of not only the citizens of upstate South Carolina but every single person traveling through our area.    Get rid of the DEATH TRAPS today!
