Cedarcrest Drive Bridge over I-20 in Lexington reopens Tuesday

A repaired bridge on Cedarcrest Drive over I-20, in Lexington, is reopening Tuesday afternoon, according to the SCDOT.

The bridge was hit by a tractor-trailer in a fatal accident on Sept. 20. The crash damaged the columns and underside of the bridge.

Construction crews have been working to restore the bridge since it was damaged.

The SC Department of Transportation, its contractors, and state, county, and industry teams worked to complete the “quick response” emergency repair in only 23 days to allow this bridge to return to service for the public.

SCDOT reminds the public to use caution while driving through work zones. 

Motorists can use SCDOT’s 511 Traveler system: http://www.511sc.org/  to help make travel decisions.  

For more information concerning this project, the public may contact SCDOT Construction Engineer, John Burns at (803) 699-5068. SCDOT photos
