The I-20 widening project in Richland County experienced a delay in opening the eastbound direction to 3 lanes of traffic. A rain event occurred near the beginning of Wednesday evening's work to shift the travel lanes on the eastbound side. The weather along with the work taking longer than anticipated led to delaying the third lane being opened to traffic.
SCDOT anticipates the work will be completed this evening and the eastbound direction will open to 3 lanes by 7 a.m. on Friday, June 27. The westbound lanes are scheduled to be shifted on Saturday evening and open to 3 lanes of traffic by 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 29.
For more information concerning this project, the public may contact SCDOT District Construction Engineer Robbie Isgett at (803) 737-6660.
