The planned Wednesday night opening of the Aviation Avenue ramp off Interstate 26 has been postponed because of a subcontractor's equipment breakdown.

S.C. Department of Transportation officials hope to have a revised opening date soon. The planned temporary closure of the Remount Road ramp onto I-26 West and the exit ramp from I-26 East also will be delayed.

The subcontractor is responsible for erasing the old striping, which must be completed before the ramps can open. All other work on the ramps has been completed and DOT is working to find other options to have this work performed.
