The South Carolina DOT plans to repair the bridge on Firetower Road (over Nicholes Creek).

The bridge will be closed on August 25, 2008 for approximately three weeks. Pending any delays due to weather, etc., the new bridge should be reopened to traffic by September 12, 2008.

The current plan is for the detour to use Western Lane, North Wingar Road, and Kennerly Road.

This is the second recent bridge repair/improvement in our area in recent weeks.
