Public Meeting Tuesday, Sept. 13 in West Columbia Concerning Proposed Leaphart Road Bridge Replacement

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has scheduled a public information meeting Tuesday, Sept. 13, concerning the proposed Leaphart Road bridge replacement over I-26 in Lexington County. 

The meeting will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Pineview Baptist Church, 3010 Leaphart Road, West Columbia.  The meeting will have a drop-in format with project displays available for viewing.  Informal, written and verbal comments will be collected during the meeting.  A brief presentation regarding the proposed project will be conducted at 6 p.m. 

The purpose of the meeting is to provide information and solicit feedback from area residents concerning the proposed Leaphart Road bridge replacement over I-26.  Another purpose of the meeting will be to gather information from the public or any interested organization on historic or cultural resources in the area.  The bridge replacement is proposed in order to upgrade the existing structure that is structurally deficient and to provide additional clearance over I-26.  Representatives of SCDOT will be available to answer questions.
