Major changes coming for I-26 in North Charleston

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Beginning Tuesday, November 30, major changes will be happening at the interchanges with I-26 at Remount Road and Aviation Avenue.

As the improvement project nears completion, exit and entrance ramps for Aviation Avenue to the westbound side of the freeway will be closed to allow for the construction of the new ramps and right hand lanes on the interstate.

On the same evening, the new ramps for Remount Road will open to traffic.

Motorists traveling to the airport from Rivers Avenue will be able to use the new overpass on Aviation Avenue.

Project managers suggest the following detours when driving in the affected area:

  • FROM I-26 WEST:  All motorists going to Aviation Avenue should exit at Remount Road and turn right to reach Aviation Avenue via Rivers Avenue, or turn left and turn right at Core Road to reach Aviation.
  • TO  I-26 WEST:  All motorists going from Aviation Avenue to I-26 West should take the new on-ramp at Remount Road.
