Officials in South Carolina will have more state troopers on major roadways for this month's solar eclipse.

Troopers will be along the Interstate 26 corridor from Aug.18 to the 21 to handle congestion and any other problems that may arise.

State Highway Patrol says the eclipse is expected to follow the highway's 221-mile path from the Upstate to the Lowcountry.

Officials predict up to one million visitors could come to South Carolina to see the Aug. 21 eclipse.
