The South Carolina Department of Transportation said it will begin taking additional precautions ahead of the Great American eclipse on Monday. The SCDOT said all digital road signs will begin displaying warnings to drivers.

Over the weekend, the message will be "Heavy traffic. Use caution." On Monday the message will change to remind people not to stop on the highway or pull over on the shoulder to watch the eclipse.

All road construction in the state will be halted and all construction lane closures will be lifted starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday.
