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.
