Charleston Moves celebrated the installation of its first Battery2Beach signs in downtown Charleston on Monday, Oct. 28. Charleston County Council member Colleen Condon, Mount Pleasant Mayor Billy Swails and Charleston Mayor Joe Riley had the honor of unveiling the first B2B sign at the corner of Chapel and East Bay.

It took a village, as they say, of volunteer citizens, mayors and town employees from Folly Beach, James Island, Charleston Peninsula, Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms, Charleston County Roadwise and SCDOT employees all working together as a team to bring this 35-mile route into reality.

The specially designed B2B signs were due to be delivered from an out of state vendor the week before the Oct. 28 celebration. Timing became extremely critical. We had six palletized bundles of 12-foot long sign posts and more than 300 palletized signs coming in on a tractor trailer and no equipment to offload and transfer to our storage facility in Mount Pleasant. The pallets needed to be in Mount Pleasant in time for the City of Charleston to pick up their signs and get them ready for Monday’s celebration.

John Burn of Mount Pleasant and his brother, Ed, at Hughes Lumber Company responded to a request for help in a flash. This is what community is about. Charleston Moves thanks you both very much.
