LOOK HERE: Road closures related to Hurricane Matthew

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Some roads remain closed or blocked because of downed trees, debris and power lines in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew's landfall.

SCDOT is working to repair infrastructure damaged by Hurricane Matthew.

In addition to infrastructure repair, SCDOT has implemented a significant effort to remove storm related debris.

Damage assessment teams continue to review infrastructure damage and prepare estimates and quantities necessary to effect repairs using in-house and contractor forces.

SCDOT bridge inspectors are also working to assess support structures for damage, and other conditions such as scour.

The Socastee Bridge on the Intracoastal Waterway in Horry County remains closed to marine traffic due to high water levels that have impacted the bridge’s electrical system.

Included below is summary information regarding closures and debris accomplishments.

There are currently 60 road closures and nine bridge closures due to Matthew.

 So far, over 80,000 cubic yards of storm related debris have been removed, according to SCDOT.
