Lee County bridge on SCDOT list to be replaced | Transportation
LEE COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A Lee County bridge is on a list of 90 bridges statewide that the South Carolina Department of Transportation plans to replace.
The bridge is on Browntown Road, crossing Scape Ore Creek.
DOT officials put together a plan to replace 90 bridges in 33 counties with extra money set aside by lawmakers.
The agency released the $53 million plan Tuesday. It is giving the public until Nov. 6 to comment on the bridges it plans to replace and the ones that aren't on the list.
SCDOT says the money was given to projects in each of South Carolina's seven congressional districts based on the percentage of load-restricted and closed bridges in each district.
The list focuses on bridges that can be replaced in the current roadway with precast structures that need little work on the road approaching the bridge.
Public comments will be accepted until the end of the business day on November 6. They can be mailed to:
