Highway 170 Project Drags On

If you drive Highway 170 in the Low Country, you know all about construction and delays. It's not wrapping up any time soon.

They're trying to widen the road in Beaufort. The Department of Transportation is saying it will take at least a few more months before the entire project is complete. There are still cracks on both the Broad River and Chechessee River Bridges and repairs are needed on the Chechessee River boat landing.

The county and the state are working together to wrap up the final phases, but the project was supposed to be completed in October two years ago.
