SCDOT to repair 5 Lowcountry bridges

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP/WCSC) - The South Carolina Department of Transportation has put together a plan to repair 90 bridges across the state, including five here in the Lowcountry, with extra money set aside by lawmakers.

The agency released the $53 million plan Tuesday. It is giving the public until Nov. 6 to comment on the bridges it plans to replace and the ones that aren't on the list.

The following Lowcountry bridges are scheduled to be replaced:

 

  • Berkeley County - Cypress Campground Road bridge over Cypress Swamp
  • Charleston County - Highway 165 bridge over Tidal Creek
  • Colleton County - Mill Pond Road bridge over Buckhead Creek
  • Dorchester County - Qauker Road bridge over Cow Tail Creek and W 2nd South Street bridge. 

 

SCDOT says the money was given to projects in each of South Carolina's seven congressional districts based on the percentage of load-restricted and closed bridges in each district.

The list focuses on bridges that can be replaced in the current roadway with precast structures that need little work on the road approaching the bridge.
