COLUMBIA, SC (AP/WCSC) -
State transportation officials say a summer of record-setting rains caused $5.6 million in damage to 132 roads across South Carolina.
Officials said Thursday that seven roads remain closed, but they are mostly lightly-traveled mountain routes.
Department of Transportation spokesman Pete Poore says the state only has $2.2 million set aside for emergency road maintenance, so the rest of the bill will have to come from money set aside for general maintenance.
More than $4 million of damage was done in 11 Upstate counties.
At least a dozen places across South Carolina reported the wettest period they have ever had between June and August. Areas in the Upstate received more than 30 inches of rain.
