SCDOT to Replace, Rehabilitate Three Bridges on I-20 over Wateree River

​Camden, S.C. (May 30, 2023) – The South Carolina Department of Transportation will replace one bridge and rehabilitate two other bridges on Interstate 20 over the Wateree River in Kershaw County, South Carolina.

These bridges are approaching the end of their service life and, through a project that will combine bridge rehabilitation and replacement, SCDOT will ensure this stretch of interstate will remain operational and continue serving as an essential connection for commercial traffic and travel.

The project will include replacing one existing bridge, rehabilitating two additional bridges, and improving the roadway approaches on Interstate 20. The project design phase will begin this year and the project is expected to advance to construction in 2024.

SCDOT has been working to rehabilitate and replace hundreds of aging bridges in South Carolina since 2018 as a part of the agency's strategic plan to improve the state's transportation infrastructure.

“As many of the bridges across our state reach their end of service life, SCDOT is working to rehabilitate and replace them before it becomes an emergency,” said Secretary of Transportation Christy A. Hall, P.E. “Ensuring that our bridge network is well prepared to support the increasing motor vehicle traffic and commercial traffic connecting South Carolina to the global economy will continue to be a priority for SCDOT.”
