All lanes of I-95, a major traffic artery for the state, have been reopened, according to officials.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation announced the reopening of the interstate’s northbound lanes just before 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
SCDOT officials said over 4,000 man hours and 2820 cubic yards of concrete – a total of nearly 300 truckloads – were used to repair the substructures of 13 I-95 bridges that cross over the Pocotaligo and Black rivers, as well as the Tearcoat branch.
Officials reopened the northbound lanes one day after the southbound lanes were opened to traffic. The interstate was closed following historic rains and flooding that swept through the Midlands on Oct. 4 and Oct. 5.
