Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- SC emergency officials say lane reversals will end tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation says the process of returning I-26 to normal operations will begin by law enforcement stopping traffic from entering the reversed lanes at I-526 in Charleston. The Department of Public Safety will then remove traffic control points on I-26 EB from Charleston to Columbia. They say once the traffic control points have been removed and a final check has been performed, all lanes will return to normal operations.
SCDOT says this process could take about three hours.
I-26 westbound will stay open during this operation. except for intermittent closures.
Authorities are encouraging everyone who is evacuating the coastal area to leave before this time because emergency officials will be leaving that area until the storm has passed.
