COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is warning motorists to seek an alternate route or expect delays and lane closures along Clemson Road in northeast Richland County as the department handles construction in the area.

SCDOT crews will be working along Clemson Road, between Old Clemson Road and Chimneyridge Drive. Weather permitting, paving will begin the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 26, and continue through the afternoon. The same work schedule will be implemented on Thursday, Feb. 20. Work is expected to be complete before 5 p.m. on both days.

County Transportation officials anticipate significant traffic delays from lane closures related to the work.

The roadwork is part of a project that will widen Clemson Road from two to five lanes, from Old Clemson Road to Sparkleberry Crossing. Crews also will create shared-used paths for cyclists and pedestrians between Old Clemson Road and Chimneyridge Drive.
