On SC roads overnight, bridges closed in Charleston

January 29, 2014 

The South Carolina Department of Transportation reported at midnight that the winter storm was being felt across the state.

In the Midlands, temperatures are ranging between 16 and 29 degrees. Sleet and snow has been reported in all counties. In Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, and Jasper counties, temperatures range between 30 and 34 degrees. Though the precipitation was mostly in the form of rain, due to the high elevations and low bridge temperatures, the Ravenel Bridge and I-526 elevated portions have been closed due to ice.

Snow and ice was building up on major and secondary roads in Greenville, Oconee, Pickens and Spartanburg Counties.

In Cherokee, Chester, Chesterfield, Fairfield, Lancaster, Union, and York counties, SCDOT operations range from pushing snow to treating priority routes, some high volume secondary roads, and bridges.

Rain and sleet is being reported throughout Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Clarendon, Hampton, and Orangeburg counties, Aiken was reporting an accumulation of snow.
