SCDOT Traffic Updates

Please check here for traffic updates for the SCDOT Railroad Bridge Project:

Update March 20, 2017
SCDOT has finished the drilled shafts for the bridge and anticipates being able to remove the drilling rig the week of March 20.  This will eliminate the need for daily lane closures.  There will only be sporadic lane closures once the drilling rig has been removed from the project site.  

Update March 1, 2017

Lane closures will continue over the next three weeks on SC 133 beginning at Lakeview Circle towards US 123 for placement of the drilled shafts.

Update December 16, 2016

Elm Street between Pickens Street and Hwy 133 will be closed 4-6 weeks due to bridge construction starting December 19.  Hwy 133 traffic to and from Elm Street will be detoured via Calhoun and Pickens Streets. 

Update December 01, 2016

This week, all traffic will be shifting to the Sonic side under the bridge in order to remove the bridge deck and beams. The pattern will be the same until the bridge deck and beams are removed. The only exception will be next week on Monday, December 5th,  when the contractor will be working at night to remove the center pier, weather permitting. During this time the inside lanes in both directions will be closed until the pier is removed and the roadway repaired.

Update October 25, 2016

Railroad Bridge demolition is scheduled to begin tomorrow (Wednesday 10/26/16).  Work will begin on the southbound (Sonic side of the road).  Both southbound lanes will be shut down while this work is taking place.  All traffic will be shifted to the two most eastern lanes (farthest away from Sonic)

Update October 18, 2016

Asbestos removal will continue the next couple days on the railroad bridge and should be complete by Thursday, October 20.  The far right lane on Highway 133 toward Six Mile will be closed while this work takes place.  Starting Thursday, October 20, there will be no closures until removal of the bridge.   Bridge removal is on hold until SCDOT can acquire track time from Norfolk Southern.

Update October 06, 2016

Work on asbestos removal has stopped until October 17. There will be no lane closures until work resumes at that time.
