SCDOT to repair Blythewood Road Bridge

BLYTHEWOOD – A 24/7 project to  repair the Blythewood Road bridge spanning I-77 is set to begin by March 15, a  spokesperson for the South Carolina Department of Transportation  said Tuesday.

The project is supposed to be complete by the end of April, but it could take longer. The traffic pattern will not be detoured for the project since the bridge is wide enough to stage the construction so that the lanes can shift and be moved.

However, there will still be one lane open in each direction throughout the project except when two turning lanes will have to be removed on separate weeks. There will also be some temporary daytime land closures when the staging is being set or shifted.

Interstate I-77 below the bridge will experience night time lane closures during painting, jacking and bearing repair of the bridge.

Once the work commences, it will continue 7 days a week until the repairs are complete.
