South Carolina Department of Transportation will close a portion of East Brewington Road while the bridge over Mulberry Branch is being replaced between July 24 and Sept. 29.
According to a letter from SCDOT, it is necessary to replace the bridge because it is structurally deficient. The bridge will be replaced with a 70-foot prestressed concrete bridge.
Traffic along East Brewington Road will be detoured to Oswego Highway, Bell Road and North Main Street. The detour length will be approximately .96 miles, according to the letter.
The letter states that Sumter County schools may be affected by the road closure and will notified the schools in order to reroute bus traffic.
