LADSON, SC (WCSC) - The Ladson Road at Palmetto Commerce Parkway Intersection Improvement Project will begin construction Monday, bringing traffic concerns to the busy intersection.
Charleston County leaders say the purpose of this project is to allow more cars to turn left from Palmetto Commerce Parkway onto the westbound lanes of Ladson Road. They're doing this by adding an additional left-turn lane to create dual left-turn lanes.
In the meantime, there will still be a right turn lane onto the eastbound lanes of Ladson Road.
The project is only supposed to take a few months and scheduled to wrap up in February 2015.
In the next few weeks, people driving through North Charleston, can expect to see work zones and construction underway.
North Charleston leaders are still working on a solution for the proposed Palmetto Commerce Parkway Extension Project which would connect Ladson Road with Aviation Avenue.
