US Highway 17 in Georgetown reopens early

GEORGETOWN, SC (WCSC) - The City of Georgetown has reopened US Highway 17 late Friday afternoon a day ahead of schedule.

City officials say the highway has been closed since last Sunday to allow piping from the drainage project to be installed. The road closure caused drivers to take several detours throughout the city, adding time to their destination.

Officials say Dozier Street behind City Hall between Front and Prince Streets will remain closed until further notice.
