International Boulevard has been reopened following a temporary closure late Saturday morning. 

According to dispatch, International Boulevard near the Tanger Outlets, and I-526 near the Citadel Mall had been closed while Charleston County Sheriff's officials conducted a short term traffic detail.

I-526 WB on the ramp from Glenn McConnell had also been closed.

According to Charleston Airport, International Blvd. at S Aviation had also been closed temporarily.

No more information is available at this time.

According to the AP, Vice President Joe Biden is spending a week in South Carolina. It is unknown if the road closures are a result of his travel plans.

WCSC reached out to Charleston County officials for more information, and were advised to contact the Secret Service.

None of the Secret Service offices in South Carolina were available for comment.
