About the Project
The South Carolina Department of Transportation proposes to replace the Shannon Drive (S-384) bridge over Brushy Creek with a new bridge in the same location. SCDOT intends for the bridge to be closed and traffic to be detoured during construction. The existing bridge was constructed in 1965 and is currently load restricted. SCDOT will monitor the existing bridge from now until construction of the new bridge begins. The project is part of SCDOT's Strategic 10 year Plan to greatly reduce the number of closed and load restricted bridges in the State of South Carolina.
SCDOT intends for the bridge to be closed to traffic during construction. Once construction begins, the bridge will be closed for approximately 12 months. Due to a load-restricted bridge being located on Richbourg Road, the proposed detour utilizes East North Street, Howell Road, and Edwards Road. The total detour length will be about 2.4 miles.
