MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (Dec. 20, 2018) -- Public Services began clearing ditches along Longpoint Road this morning.
The clearing is a proactive action to help prevent flooding on Longpoint Road before heavy rains arrive this afternoon. Officials anticipate the clearing should take approximately two hours.
Due to this, traffic will be diverted through the Snowden community. The diversion will be at Whipple and Snowden roads.
If possible, please use Highway 17 and/or I-526 as alternate routes. If you do use Longpoint Road, please use caution and reduce speeds as you drive through the Snowden community.
We will update the road closure through our social media channels. Facebook and Twitter.
