CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Opponents of a new cruise ship terminal are asking the South Carolina Court of Appeals to reconsider its decision that they have no right to challenge permits for the project.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that a group of environmental, neighborhood and historic preservation groups have asked the court to reconsider its decision last month that prevents them from challenging a new cruise terminal.

The South Carolina State Ports Authority wants to build a $35 million terminal for cruise ships near Charleston's City market.

Opponents said they are worried about traffic congestion and pollution.

The permit would allow construction of new pilings under an old warehouse where the ports authority wants to build the terminal, currently used mostly by Carnival Cruise Line and its Ecstasy cruise ship.
