The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has scheduled a media briefing on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019, to provide a detailed update on the I-20 widening project in Lexington County.
The 10:30 a.m. briefing will be held in room 306 at SCDOT Headquarters, 955 Park St., Columbia.
At the briefing, the media will receive details on an upcoming traffic shift and have the opportunity to view a video simulation of the traffic flow changes. SCDOT engineers will be available to answer questions.
The 11-mile widening project extends from mile marker 60 near US 378 to mile marker 49 at Longs Pond Road in Lexington County. Upon completion, the project will add a third inside lane in both directions aimed at reducing traffic congestion. It is expected to be completed in the summer of 2021.
