A new six-mile-long road called Commerce Parkway is expected to relieve traffic congestion on Interstate 26 in the Lowcountry.

The $36 million road will open with a ribbon cutting ceremony today. The road connects Ladson and Ashley Phosphate roads, running parallel to I-26 in an area that sees quite a bit of congestion during heavy traffic hours.
