State order temporary bridge

August 29, 2013

The DOT is moving ahead with plans to use a temporary bridge in Pickens County to replace the existing structure on Jones Mill Road over Six Mile Creek near Daniel High School. The bridge was closed the night of August 6 when heavy rains caused a partial collapse. Three days later, Governor Haley signed an emergency declaration to allow the South Carolina DOT to request emergency funds from the Federal Highway Administration. The feds approved the request and this week OK’d the use of a temporary bridge. That temporary bridge is expected to be installed and the road re-opened by the end of October. The detour around the damaged bridge is a little more than four and a half miles. Construction on the new bridge is scheduled to begin next summer when the school year is complete.
