North Carolina motorists traveling through South Carolina should be mindful that their trips could be impacted by road closures and detours due to this weekend’s heavy rainfall and historic flooding.
A stretch of I-95 is closed in South Carolina between Florence and I-26. Traffic on I-95 South will be detoured onto I-20 and routed to Columbia. That will take motorists around Columbia on I-77 and then back down I-26 towards Charleston to reconnect to I-95. The detour will be reversed for I-95 North.
South Carolina crews are also rerouting a short section of I-20 within the Columbia area to I-77.
In addition, long-distance passenger rail service through South Carolina will also be impacted today and likely tomorrow.
