As we move into the future, more and more industries are doing what they can to address issues such as air pollution and carbon emissions. This year Aiken County stepped up to join the cause.
Located off Exit 5 between 1-20 west and Austin Graybill Road, is North Augusta’s brand new Park and Ride, a 1.6 million dollar facility constructed to reduce traffic and air pollution in the CSRA. This federally funded project is expected to encourage carpooling by providing a central meeting place to commute to work.
Aiken County hopes the new Park and Ride will reduce their impact of fuel emissions on the environment. In addition, the 220-space Park & Ride will be a great asset for employees moving across state lines for work as it will help save on fuel costs.
It took nearly 10 years for the Park and Ride to open, but the payoff will be monumental for the city. Through the voluntary action of ridesharing, the Park and Ride gives residents further opportunity to reduce mobile source emissions and improve air quality. The Park and Ride does much more than reduce air pollution. Included in the project is a rain garden which contains storm water runoff, which benefits water quality. And soon to be added is LED lighting which will save energy as well as reduce maintenance costs.
