Rt. 17 from Charleston to Jekyll Island-Irma travel issues??

I had posted this in the "road trip" section with no response. Maybe this is a better spot to ask my question! I'm driving from Charleston to Jekyll on Oct 9th and wanted to stay off of 95 as it is a holiday, so I decided to take Rt. 17. Just wondering if there are any lingering storm related travel issues? Staying for 1 night and then headed to Daytona Beach area, again using 17 to 295 around Jacksonville and then US1. Hopefully these will be passable also! Appreciate any first hand knowledge you might have!

" and wanted to stay off of 95 as it is a holiday"

95 in the NE and 95 in the SE are two completely different animals.

Take a look at the webcams -

Columbus Day shouldn't have any impact on the roads either.

Personally, I'd want to stay off 95 regardless. 17 is much calmer.

Just did a portion of that a couple days ago. Everything was fine. There were some closures by Ridgeland initially, but they should be all cleared away by your trip.

Thank you all for your replies. I think I'll be using 17 and enjoy the "calmness"!
