Flooding impacts Lowcountry streets

Posted: Updated:

According to Charleston City Police, roadways are beginning to flood, especially in the western portions of the peninsula.

The Ravenel Bridge heading to the Crosstown opened up shortly before 5 p.m.  It was closed throughout Sunday afternoon because of flooding near the Crosstown.

Some of the roads flooded include: Hagood Avenue, Horizon Street, Fishburne Street, President Street, Ashley Avenue, Lockwood /Bull/Bennett/Gadsden area.

Also: Spring Street & President Street (outer lanes), Cannon Street, Bogard Street, Sumter Street, Tradd Street, Calhoun Street and Ogier Street.

Charleston County Deputies also ask drivers to drive with extreme caution as areas of Folly Road in the area of Camp Road, Folly Road and Fort Johnson are especially vulnerable to flooding and are currently under water.

Rain is expected for most of the day so "those who must travel are asked to add some extra travel time into their trips if travel is necessary and to slow down during the heavy rains and flooding streets," Major Jim Brady said.
