SCDOT has lowered the weight limit to a three-ton maximum on the McDaniel Avenue Bridge over the Reedy River in Cleveland Park. Vehicles larger than an SUV should take an alternate route.
A recent inspection revealed extensive corrosion to the existing steel beams. SCDOT received an emergency procurement for repairs. They hope to finalize bids this month, award a contract in February and begin construction soon thereafter.
It is estimated the repairs will take three months. McDaniel Avenue and a portion of the Swamp Rabbit Trail will be closed and detours provided.
