The SC Department of Transportation is making repairs to the bridge in Modoc on Highway 23 at the Edgefield/McCormick County line. However, those repairs are considered minor and should be completed within the week.
According to Tommy Parker with SCDOT in McCormick County, an accident that occurred at the bridge back in December necessitated repairs to the wing wall of the structure.
The repairs began on Monday, Jan. 27, and are expected to be completed by Wednesday, Jan. 30. Flagmen are at the site to direct traffic across the bridge. Travelers are advised to use caution when approaching and crossing the bridge.
