Beginning late this summer, Highway 17 will get some much-needed help for traffic congestion.  Renovation plans for Johnnie Dodds Boulevard from the foot of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge to just north of the Interstate 526 interchange in Mount Pleasant were discussed earlier this week in a meeting of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s Developers Council. Details of the plans are highlighted in the Charleston Regional Business Journal.

The $80 million dollar project is scheduled to begin in August.
