SCDOT Begins Main Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project

SCDOT plans to rehabilitate the U.S. 501 Business Bridge over the Waccamaw River. Work is being performed by Olympus Painting Contractors, Inc. The purpose of this project is to repair the surface of the existing deck and place a new latex concrete overlay. The joints will be replaced, the steel structure will be cleaned and painted and portions of the concrete structure will be cleaned and painted. Work is set to begin January 7, 2019. The bridge will have to be closed to complete portions of the work. The closure will begin January 7, 2019, and extend through March 31, 2019. See the attached map highlighting the detour route. The project is set to be complete by June 30, 2019
