The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT)
urges all motorists to be aware of congestion on I-526 in the Mount Pleasant
area. The traffic tie-up begins on the eastbound lanes at Long Point Road.
SCDOT has dispatched SHEP units to assist motorists as much
as possible. SHEP Responders are working with law enforcement agencies to
monitor the situation until traffic returns to its normal flow.
SCDOT advises all motorists approaching that section of
I-526 to slow down and use caution. Motorists can use the SCDOT 511 Traveler
system at: www.511.sc.org.
