Holiday weekend traffic checkpoint planned in James Island

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC)

James Island motorists will need to watch for law enforcement officers and the possibility of stopped traffic for several early-morning hours over the Memorial Day weekend.

That's the word from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office, which announced plans for a traffic safety checkpoint beginning around midnight Sunday near the intersection of Folly Road and Needlegrass Lane.

Sheriff's office spokesman Maj. Eric Watson says it will be a joint effort between the Charleston County Sheriff's Traffic Division and H.E.A.T., the Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic.
