Monday afternoon rainstorms might have damaged a major Midlands road.
An asphalt defect on Interstate 26 eastbound was reported by the South Carolina Highway Patrol. The defect is near mile marker 112, between the Airport Boulevard and US-1 exits.
The issue was called a “roadway washout” on the SCHP’s website. Water might have eroded a portion of I-26.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation is reportedly on the scene to repair the washout, and has closed part of the road, limiting traffic to one lane and causing delays.
