Quarter-Mile Westbound I-20 Lane Closure Begins Monday, May 2 in Lee County for Bridge Deck Replacement

Wide loads over 10 feet must use detour

Motorists are advised to expect congestion due a long-term lane closure required on westbound Interstate 20 in Lee County beginning Monday, May 2, 2016.

Republic Contracting Corp., of Columbia, a contractor for the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), plans to work around the clock to replace a bridge deck on I-20 near mile marker 117. The bridge deck is deteriorating due to aging infrastructure.

I-20 westbound will be reduced from two lanes to one for a quarter-mile. Traffic on the eastbound side of I-20 is not impacted.

The anticipated completion date is approximately June 30, 2016.

Note: A detour route will be in place for all wide loads greater than 10 feet wide. This signed detour uses Highway 341 (exit 120) and re-enters I-20 from US 15 (exit 116).

The lane closure will begin Monday morning, May 2, as workers begin installing a temporary concrete barrier along the work zone.

Motorists are reminded to use caution in work zones, obey the speed limit and expect traffic congestion. The public can keep up with traffic conditions by using SCDOT's 511 Traveler Information System,
