COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) -

The South Carolina Department of Transportation closed a 70-mile section of I-95 between the I-20 and I-26 interchanges Sunday. 

The decision to close the portion of I-95 was made after a number of flooded sections of the interstate required several detours, according to SCDOT spokesman Robert Kudelka.

The alternate route is I-20 Florence to I-77 around Columbia, then onto I-26 east for motorists to return to I-95. Northbound travelers would reverse this route.

Traveler information is available on the SCDOT website: www.scdot.org.
