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