Columbia, S.C. (July 10, 2023) – Following recent inspection, the bridge on SC 51 over the Black River in Georgetown County was load restricted. In order to expedite repairs and remove the load restriction on the bridge, SCDOT will need to close the bridge for approximately four weeks. The road is scheduled to close beginning July 17, 2023 for work to begin.
A detour route has been established and further details are below. SCDOT appreciates the patience of drivers as we work to make these critical repairs and restore service in this area.
