MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Police say repairs on a sewer main that broke on Thursday afternoon are likely to impact Friday evening rush hour.

Officials with the Mount Pleasant Police Department gave an update Friday morning on the status of the repairs on Rifle Range Road at Long Grove Drive.

“Crews will be working throughout the day,” Mount Pleasant Police said in a tweet. “It is likely that evening rush hour traffic will be impacted by the work.”

Traffic heading south towards Ben Sawyer Blvd is open but traffic heading north toward the IOP connector will be rerouted into the center median, according to police.

“We are expecting traffic delays in and around the area,” Inspector Don Calabrese said. “Crews are on the way for the repair but the traffic diversion will be in place for at least 12 hours and could be longer impacting Friday morning traffic.”

Motorists are asked to use caution in the area.
