Charleston police are trying out a new strategy this year in an attempt to ease Cooper River Bridge Run traffic.
The Post and Courier reports that officers will be stationed at the major intersections along Meeting, Calhoun, East Bay, and King streets on Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. to coordinate traffic flow to and from the Bridge Run Expo at Gaillard Auditorium. Officers will also be prohibiting left turns onto all of these roads (except East Bay), which is the major cause for traffic snares along the way.

We've also received word that the City of Charleston is providing all Cooper River Bridge Run participants with the opportunity to park free at the Gaillard and Aquarium Garages for two hours during the Bridge Run Expo and Packet Pick-up at the Gaillard Auditorium on Thursday, March 31st, 12 to 8 p.m., and Friday, April 1st, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
