About the Project
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) proposes to replace the SC 133 (Crowe Creek Road) bridge over Crow Creek, located between Nine Times and Six Mile, approximately four miles southeast of Keowee Toxaway State Park, in Pickens County. This SC 133 bridge has been identified as structurally deficient and in need of replacement. The proposed replacement bridge would be on a new alignment, to the northeast of the existing bridge. This construction method would minimize impacts to the traveling public by not requiring a detour during construction. The project is part of SCDOT's Strategic 10-year Plan to greatly reduce the number of closed and load-restricted bridges in South Carolina.
Purpose and Need
The purpose of the proposed project is to eliminate the structural deficiencies of the existing SC 133 (Crowe Creek Road) bridge over Crow Creek.
