SCDOT announces Huger Street Bridge rehab construction
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) – The South Carolina Department of Transportation has announced the start of construction on the Huger Street Bridge rehab in Richland Co.
The project begins at Elmwood Ave. and connects travelers heading southbound on Huger St.
The purpose of this project is to improve safety, rehabilitate the aging interstate and mend the existing bridge.
The project is part of the $21 million contract awarded to Lane Construction for the Pavement Preservation Program that began in April 2018.
Construction will start on the Huger Street Bridge on June 1, 2018 and is expected to be completed by June 24, 2018. The intent of this notice is to bring attention that a detour will take traffic from Elmwood Ave. To Assembly St. continuing to Laurel St. which will permit traffic to Huger St.
A detour will be installed Friday evening at 7 p.m. and remain in place until 6 a.m. Monday mornings. The detour will only be installed on the weekends. The travel lane will remain open during the week to minimize impacts to motorists.
