Two South Carolina interstates will be a little easier to drive on for the holidays. Charleston’s main interstate, I-26 has been going through construction all this year. Due to the high influx of traffic expected throughout the holidays, that construction will be put on halt until next year. I-26 is expanding into eight lanes by April 2011. The Post and Courier reports a spokesman for the company working the $66 million project says construction work will start back up on the interstate on January 4 next year.
Another South Carolina interstate that connects with I-26, Interstate-95, has recently undergone repairs on a small section over Lake Marion in Clarendon County. Those repairs are now complete and travelers can now drive on all lanes of the interstate.
