Lane to close Jan. 22 on I-95 at mile marker 175
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) will perform bridge deck rehabilitation that will require a lane closure on I-95 northbound at mile marker 175 over the Great Pee Dee River in Florence and Dillon Counties. Originally scheduled to begin on Jan. 9, the counties have changed the start date to Jan. 22. The expected completion date is still March 16.
The lane closure at northbound mile marker 175 will begin on, Monday, Jan. 22. A single lane closure will remain in place continuously for 53 days while crews work to perform the deck rehabilitation, and all lanes will reopen to traffic on Friday, March 16, 2018.
Over Size-Over Weight (OSOW) trucks will be restricted to 10 foot wide loads. All vehicles exceeding 10 feet in width shall use the posted detour route. The posted detour route will be I-95 North to Exit 170 (SC 327) to US76/301 to US 301 to SC 38 to I-95 North Exit 181.
Motorists traveling along this northbound section of I-95 are advised to use caution in the work zone and expect traffic congestion. Motorists are also encouraged to use alternate routes or the dedicated detour to avoid severe congestion on I-95 in the northbound direction.
