South Carolina Department of Transportation officials announced that they will be closing the center and right lanes of I-77 northbound near the Shop Road exit Thursday afternoon.

Officials said they hope to have the repairs completed and all lanes reopened later Thursday afternoon.

Motorists planning to travel in the area are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to be on the lookout for workers.
