Ramp closures return to Mt. Pleasant this week at the site of the new Hungryneck Boulevard intersection.

Starting Tuesday, construction officials say I-526 exit 29 onto Highway 17 will be closed, as will the ramp onto I-526 from Highway 17, from 10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning.

The closures will repeat on Wednesday and Thursday as well.

Traffic on I-526 will be detoured to Chuck Dawley Boulevard to Bowman Road, Rifle Range Road and then onto Venning Road. I-526 traffic, wishing to travel on Highway 17 North beyond Boone Hall, could also use I-526 exit 28 at Longpoint Road.

Motorists on Highway 17 wishing to access I-526 Westbound are asked to use Mathis Ferry Road and follow the detour signs to I-526.
