CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A pair of stalled vehicles are causing massive delays on I-26 and I-526.

A stalled vehicle on I-526 in the westbound lanes forced the closure of the right lane for a time near mile marker 23. Though the vehicle appeared to have been cleared by 5 p.m., delays continued as traffic backed up, leading to an estimated 73 minute drive time from Mount Pleasant to West Ashley.

A second stalled vehicle in the westbound lanes of I-26 near University Boulevard exits are also causing delays.

On top of that, a traffic signal failure was causing traffic problems at U.S. 78 at Ladson Road.
