Construction work off Edgefield Highway and Rutland Drive causing heavy traffic
Drivers may currently be seeing some heavy traffic Wednesday afternoon moving into the intersection where Laurens Street, Edgefield Highway (Hwy 19), University Parkway and Rutland Drive all meet.
Construction work just off Peach Orchard Place on Edgefield Highway is causing traffic to back up, said Lt. Jake Mahoney, with Aiken Public Safety.
The traffic is expected to continue in the area until 6:30 p.m.
Drivers are encouraged to find alternative routes around that intersection if possible. Those who will be coming through that intersection Wednesday evening are asked to be patient, Mahoney said.
