Lane reversals have begun on I-26.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - UPDATE - SCDOT officials I-26 lane reversal will end at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2019.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol has made a change in the I-26 lane reversal.

Drivers can now exit from the reversed lanes and true westbound lanes onto College Park Road. Entry onto I-26 from College Park Road will occur on the true westbound ramp.

South Carolina Highway Patrol Troopers and the Department of Public Safety officially put a lane reversal on I-26 into effect around 10:40 a.m. Monday morning.

All lanes of I-26 are now traveling westbound beginning at the I-526 merge.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster announced Sunday that both sides of I-26 between Charleston and Columbia would be switched to westbound travel beginning Monday.

The reversal took place at the interchange of I-26 and I-526 and continues west until the I-26 crossover to I-77 just outside Columbia in Lexington County. Drivers are not able to use I-26 to get from Columbia to Charleston.

Troopers first began closing the eastbound entrance ramps at 5 a.m. Monday
