— A major route in and out of Columbia will close to traffic for up to 15 minutes Wednesday evening.

Traffic on U.S. 176, also called River Drive and Broad River Road, will be prevented from going over the Broad River Bridge in both directions on Wednesday from about 6:45 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

City officials said in a Tuesday press release that Lane Construction Co. will be doing “demolition activities” on the bridge at that time. The release did not give any reason for the demolition.
