Drainage Damages Murals; Task Force Investigates
A task force has organized to do something about stained pier murals under I-64, that were compromised by drainage over time. Charleston's Strong Neighborhoods Task Force talked about it at a meeting this week, and revealed that about $62,000 was spent paying artists for the murals, and it started in coordination with FestivALL. The Daily Mail says about $10,000 more was spent at local businesses for supplies. The murals can be cleaned with dish detergent and a sponge, but the bigger issues is stopping the drainage. The task force plans to meet with the state Division of Highways to decide what to do.
