Temporary bridge opened in Pickens County

November 14, 2013

The South Carolina DOT opened a temporary bridge yesterday afternoon to replace the existing, damaged section on Jones Mill Road over Six Mile Creek in Pickens County near Daniel High School. The DOT uses temporary bridges because they save money by reconnecting motorists sooner than if they had to spend time and fuel on detours while awaiting a permanent replacement. The bridge over Six Mile Creek was closed the night of August 6 when heavy rains caused a partial collapse. Governor Haley signed an emergency declaration three days later that allowed the DOT to request Emergency Relief Funds from the Federal Highway Administration. Plans are in the works for a permanent replacement bridge.
