​Charleston, S.C. (May 16, 2023) – SCDOT has begun resurfacing two stretches of Interstate 526 in the Charleston area. This road construction work will take place over the next couple of months and may result in temporary lane closures or detours between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. 

Resurfacing will take place in the following locations:
  • I-526 between Long Point Road and Chuck Dawley Boulevard in Mount Pleasant
  • I-526 between International Boulevard and Highway 17 in West Ashley
Motorists should follow signed detour routes and use caution when driving near work zones.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is the state agency with oversight of South Carolina’s network of highways and bridges, including responsibilities such as planning, design, construction, financing, and roadway safety. To ensure the nation’s fourth-largest highway system is prepared to serve the needs of South Carolina’s growing economy and population, SCDOT has developed a Strategic 10-Year Plan that addresses improvements to the state’s highway and bridge systems.
