Katherine Swanson, and her daughter Mary Grace, 11, watch as traffic becomes congested at the intersection of Mill Creek Boulevard and SC 170 on Aug. 14, 2014. Swanson wants to see county engineers install a traffic light at the intersection, which they say will occur next spring once construction is complete. "It's a matter of time before someone gets in a bad accident or worse outside of the Mill Creek neighborhood, and it's only going to get worse with the additional lanes going in later this year...," Swanson said. "It's frightening, is the best way to put it."
