SCDOT to close 1 lane of I-95 southbound

Posted

Motorists traveling to Florence from Sumter should be aware that South Carolina Department of Transportation will be closing one lane on Interstate 95 southbound at mile marker 147 over Lynches River in Florence County starting Wednesday.

The single-lane closure - necessary for a bridge deck rehabilitation project - will remain in place for 30 days. The expected completion date is March 23 if there are no delays because of weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Oversize / overweight trucks will be restricted to 11-foot-wide loads.

All vehicles exceeding 11 feet in width must use the posted detour route, I-95 South to Exit 150/S.C. 403 South to Lynches River Road to S.C. 341 North to I-95 South Exit 146.

Motorists traveling along this southbound section of I-95 are advised to use caution in the work zone and expect traffic congestion.

To avoid severe congestion, motorists can use alternate routes or the dedicated detour when traveling in the southbound direction.

Check traffic conditions on I-95 and other major highways in S.C. at www.511sc.org, or download the free 511 Traveler Information System app.
