Bridge Removal on Speedway Boulevard in Jasper County

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) plans to remove the existing bridge over CSX Railroad on Speedway Boulevard (US 17) just north of South Okatie Highway (SC 315) in Jasper County. SCDOT plans to remove the existing bridge and construct an at-grade crossing in its place.

SCDOT Maintenance Forces rated the bridge as structurally deficient. The rail corridor the bridge overpasses is inactive, there are no tracks present, and CSX Transportation has no plans to install tracks in the future.
SCDOT is nearing the final stage of the design process. The project is tentatively scheduled to begin early 2016. Construction is expected to take up to 12 months. More information will be made available to the public as the project develops.
For more information, the public may contact Program Manager Roger Sears at (803) 737-1142.
