GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Construction crews are starting to shift traffic as part of a $230 million project to improve the Interstate 85-Interstate 385 interchange in Greenville.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation says that this weekend, if the weather allows, crews will finish a temporary ramp to take drivers from I-85 north to I-385 north.

Crews also have shifted driving lanes for the project, which will add lanes to both highways and build bridges to eliminate tight curves and short merging lanes.

Most of the construction work should be finished in late 2018, with completion of the project set for several months later.
