Bridge Replacement Over Sandy Branch Creek in Kershaw County

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) plans to replace the bridge on Watson Street (S-28-120) near Elgin in Kershaw County.

SCDOT Maintenance Forces rated the bridge as structurally deficient. The bridge will be closed on May 11, 2015. Barring any unforeseen delays, the bridge should be reopened to traffic by approximately Jul. 17, 2015. The bridge is being replaced with a new 60 foot prestressed concrete bridge.

The proposed detour route is Bookman Road (S-396) and Bowen Road (S-48). The net detour length is -0.27 miles shorter.
