Traffic heading into Mt. Pleasant jammed up


An accident on the Ravenel Bridge has jammed up traffic heading into Mt. Pleasant on Friday afternoon.

Traffic has backed up to the crest of the Ravenel Bridge because of the accident, according to Mt. Pleasant police. Traffic is being rerouted onto Coleman Blvd. Drivers should expect delays on Highway 17 North.

South Carolina Highway Patrol also responded to an incident on Interstate 526 heading toward Mt. Pleasant earlier Friday afternoon. A tractor-trailer caught fire near the Don Holt Bridge.

That incident has been cleared and traffic appears to be moving again, despite a lengthy delay earlier.
