South Carolina Department of Transportation plans to repair or replace three bridges in two counties near Lake Marion

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is seeking public input regarding proposed bridge repairs in Clarendon and Orangeburg counties.

Clarendon County 

SCDOT is proposing repairs to the SC260 Bridge over Second Water-Lake Marion. Portions of the bridge have deteriorated to the point that repairs are necessary, according to SCDOT engineers. 

The meeting, scheduled for 5-7 p.m. December 6 at Manning High School, 2155 Paxville Highway, Manning, will be a drop-in format with displays for viewing the scope of the project and attendees will have a chance to provide written comments. There will not be a formal presentation at this meeting.

Plans are to close SC260 at the bridge during construction and reroute traffic along Kenwood Road, Shaw Road, and Durant Lane. SCDOT expects the project to take 45 days, beginning in the summer of 2023.

The repairs of SC260 Bridge over Second Water-Lake Marion is expected to cost approximately $695,000.
