Bacons Bridge Rd. reopened to traffic

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Dorchester County deputies say Bacons Bridge Road has been reopened after earlier reports of a water main being left on resulted in an icy temporary shutdown.

Deputies say water pouring from a nearby water tower pooled up alongside Bacons Bridge Road early this morning, and eventually made its way on to the bridge near Renken Road between Dorchester Road and Highway 61. That water began to ice up, resulting in the closure.

The road is now open after crews spent much of the morning laying sand and removing ice.
