Breaking down the I-26 lane reversal is a multi-step process and is estimated to take 4 hours to complete. Motorists should plan accordingly. Follow @scdps_pio for continued updates.
SCDPS advises motorists that state troopers and SCDOT will begin the process of breaking down the I-26 lane reversal between Charleston and Columbia beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at Noon. The normal I-26 WB lanes toward Columbia will remain open during this time.
Breaking down the lane reversal at this time will allow first responders and other personnel adequate time to complete the process and take shelter before the onset of tropical storm force winds.
BE ADVISED — ALL ENTRY POINTS TO THE REVERSED LANES of I-26 EASTBOUND, including I-526, will be closed during this time.
