Portions of I-26, U.S. Highway 601 close for electric line work
ORANGEBURG, S.C. (wACH) —
Parts of Interstate 26 and U.S. Highway 601 in Orangeburg will be closed during the night this week for electric line work.
The closure will run from March 19-25 and will take place at night. SCE&G crews will perform line work across the roadways and in coordination with S.C. Highway Patrol and S.C. Department of Transportation. This will be done in order to reduce the impact on traffic.
The project will begin east of mile marker 142 and then relocate to the intersection of I-26 and U.S. Highway 601 from March 20-25. Closures will affect the inside lane and shoulders in the eastbound and westbound directions. The closure will run from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.
SCEG urges drivers to expect delays and exercise caution.
