Traffic concerns prompt school closings on day of concert

September 24, 2018 GMT

EDGEFIELD, S.C. (AP) — Some students in South Carolina will get a day off of school because of a country music concert, but will have to make up the time later.

Luke Bryan is performing Friday, Oct. 5 at a farm in North Augusta, about 75 miles (121 kilometers) southwest of Columbia.

The State newspaper reports that the South Carolina Highway Patrol anticipates heavy traffic leading to the concert site. To try to avoid bottlenecks on the roads, Edgefield County School District is closing schools that day.

The missed time will be made up just before winter break.
