CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The public has a chance to learn about efforts to relieve gridlock along Interstate 26 between Charleston and Summerville.

The interstate is routinely jammed during the morning and evening rush hours and the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments has been conducting a study for a year to identify transit alternatives.

A series of meetings set for the coming days is the final step in determining an alternative form of transportation - either light rail or rapid transit buses - and which of three alternative corridors the buses or trains could use.

The first meeting is set for Thursday at Bethany United Methodist Church in Summerville. Other meetings are being held next Monday at the Charleston Museum in Charleston and Tuesday at North Charleston City Hall.
