MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Last weekend there was a four car collision at approximately 11: 13 a.m., 200 yards south of the controlled traffic at Boone Hall that tied up the roadway.

Two of the vehicles had to be towed resulting in both lanes being blocked for a period of time while the collision was cleared. 

This disruption caused major delays but after a two hour period traffic flow was restored but heavy.

To further improve our traffic safety efforts, the Mount Pleasant Police Department will stage additional resources in the area of Highway 17 near Boone Hall for this weekend’s events at Boone Hall. Officers and tow trucks will be staged north and south of Boone Hall on Highway 17 to quickly respond to a collision or incident that may cause traffic congestion. 

Additional officers will also be staged to monitor alternative routes such as Rifle Range Rd., Six Mile Rd., and Hamlin Rd.

We ask that drivers use caution in all areas but especially on Highway 17 between Brickyard Plantation and Longpoint Rd.

For those traveling Highway 17 southbound, if you are not attending Boone Hall, stay in the left two lanes to bypass the event.

For those traveling Highway 17 northbound, if you are not attending the events, stay to the right to bypass the event.
