Hilton Head Island Town Councilman Lee Edwards said the state and county should instead pursue a new plan by Beaufort County Councilman Stu Rodman.
Rodman wants to eliminate the eastbound flyover and instead make the extension at grade.
The Fording Island Road Extension would then intersect with Bluffton Parkway rather than going under it.
Doing so would save millions, according to Rodman, without endangering the project, but would not address the more prominent westbound flyover Edwards argues spoils the entrance to the island.
