New road to reduce traffic near Wando High School

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Plans for a new road in Mt. Pleasant are in the works to ease the traffic on Highway 17 near Wando High School.

Developers are building a new road behind the high school that will connect the roundabout at Park Avenue and Carolina Park Boulevards to Darrell Creek Trail.

The addition will give drivers two options instead of one, which should limit the pile ups on Hwy. 17 as teachers, parents, and students navigate their cars onto Carolina Park Blvd. and Warrior Way.

Construction is expected to be finished in November.
