How is Tropical Storm Florence affecting Beaufort County roads on Saturday afternoon?

1:00 p.m. update:

Traffic on Lowcountry roads continues to flow smoothly Saturday.

Some stretches of SC 170 near the Georgia line and U.S. 278 near SC 46 are moving slower, but there were no accidents or serious signs of congestion, according to the South Carolina Department of Transportation website.

Farther north, I-95 looks mostly clear through South Carolina, which is good news for those returning to Beaufort County as Tropical Storm Florence continues to lash parts of North and South Carolina. The only exception is a disabled vehicle near mile marker 44 that has closed the left lane on that stretch of highway.

On Hilton Head Island, the Cross Island Parkway is seeing some traffic on the southern side, though traffic cameras showed few cars on the road through the toll plaza.

Beaufort is seeing some slowing of traffic throughout the downtown.

All bridges in the area are open, Capt. Bob Bromage of the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office said at 1:15 p.m..
