Lane closure on I-20 West for road work to begin Tuesday night

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The right westbound lane on Interstate 20 West between mile markers 61 and 54 will be closed for three nights starting Tuesday night for road work.

The lane, according to the South Carolina Department of Transportation, will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day. This will begin on January 12 and will end on January 14.

During this time, the on-ramps for U.S. Highway 1 and S.C. Highway 6 will also be closed on I-20 West. To gain access to Exits 55 and 58, motorists will have to travel Exit 51. From there, motorists can get onto I-20 East and make their way to Exits 55 and 58.

To get onto I-20 West from S.C. Highway 6 (Exit 55), motorists will use a detour route along Two Notch Road to Longs Pond Road where entry to I-20 will be open at Exit 51.

Traffic wishing to enter I-20 West from U.S. Highway 1 (Exit 58) must follow the detour route down Dolley Road to Two Notch Road to Longs Pond Road. From there, motorists can enter I-20 at Exit 51.

The road work being done is part of a four-phase project that will widen I-20 along the 11-mile stretch. The project starts at mile marker 60 near U.S. Highway 378 and ends at mile marker 49 near Longs Pond Road.

The project is expected to be finished in the summer of 2021.
