The closure will extend from mile marker 204 to mile marker 209. 

Construction is scheduled to begin in September 2020 for the project, which will include:

  • A new interchange on I-26 between US 78 (University Boulevard) and Ashley Phosphate Road.
  • A new westerly connection to Palmetto Commerce Parkway, Weber Boulevard and Northside Drive.
  • Access for future development on approximately 1,000 acres of adjacent property.
