The US Highway 17 Widening Project was highlighted in the Moultrie News, a newspaper serving Mount Pleasant and east of the Cooper River. The article describes Tidewater’s coordination with the sweetgrass basket community during the roadway widening in Mount Pleasant. Tidewater actively participated in initial project scoping, prepared environmental assessments for NEPA compliance, and now acts as a liaison to the sweetgrass basket community during the 2-year construction. The US 17 Widening exemplifies our ability to manage a project from “cradle-to-grave”. As the project comes to a close, the artistry of sweetgrass baskets remains within the project corridor. http://www.moultrienews.com/article/20130123/MN01/130129945/1034/MN/new-stands-better-locations
