Y'll worked really hard to uncover this since it has been reported on by other local news services since April. Nothing gets past y'all for long. Great job on breaking a 2 month old story. Considering that US 17 crosses I-95 before it crosses over the state line west of as I-95 you should use SR 200 or some other route to head west. US 17 is a 2 lane winding highway that crosses on an 86 year old swing bridge in to a flood prone rural area that is going to get you further away from the coast. No one should be using this route for evacuation unless they live right by the bridge and those people should already know the bridge is closed. This route is not going to get out of danger any sooner than taking I-95 or going west to US 23,1,301 which is a major highway that branches out or connects to many other major highways. US 17 just takes you back to the coast in GA after crossing I-95 again south of Brunswick. You are still going to have to use I-95 or another highway to get far enough north or west to be out of danger. You might as well use I-95 to begin with. So when is your hard hitting investigative report on how the mayor's office is wasting taxpayer money using 2 ply toilet paper instead of 1 ply coming out? Is next weeks breaking news going to be "Automobile Use Cuts Deep Into Passenger Rail Use" or "Nixon Resigns Over Watergate"?
