An overturned trailer has slowed westbound traffic Friday morning on Interstate 526 near Mount Pleasant, a police official said.

The wreck was reported on the James B. Edwards Bridge over the Wando River, Mount Pleasant Police Department Officer Jill Gioia said around 8:20 a.m.

Gioia said motorists should expect "significant delays" until the problem is remedied.

Instead, people could use U.S. Highway 17 to reach downtown Charleston, North Charleston and West Ashley.
