COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

Crews are making steady progress reopening roads and bridges in South Carolina.
    
The state Department of Transportation reports that there are now 140 state roads and bridges that are still closed as a result of the historic flooding earlier this month.

There are still closures on 13 primary routes - that is, state and federal highways - in South Carolina.

State road closures are down from a peak of 541 on October 5, a 74 percent decrease. 
    
The department says that more than 130 SCDOT crews are working 12-hour shifts, seven days a week, to get state roads and bridges reopened.
