Update on I-95 Preservation Project in South Carolina

The South Carolina Department of Transportation continues work on an interstate preservation project on Interstate 95 in Dillon Florence and Clarendon Counties. The preservation project has been under way since October 2017 along a 21-mile stretch of Southbound I-95 from mile marker 192 near Dillon to mile marker 171 near Florence. Currently the contractor is working near southbound mile marker 190 up to mile marker 172 along with working at Exit 160 Ramps in Florence County. The work will continue to progress south into Florence County and includes concrete patching, diamond grinding, joint sealing, and pavement markings.

Southbound lane closures are expected to be in place 24 hours a day from Mondays at 7 p.m. until Thursdays at 10 a.m. From 10 a.m. on Thursdays until 7 p.m. on Mondays, only nighttime closures are permitted.

For motorists traveling southbound, alternate routes include US 301/76 or SC 34. Motorists are encouraged to use the alternate routes to avoid delays if there are noticeable traffic backups and if message boards request the use of an alternate route.

SCDOT appreciates your patience and cooperation during these necessary activities to provide a safer, more efficient interstate system. Motorists are advised to use caution in the work zone. “Let ’em Work, Let ’em Live.”
