Road Closures in South Carolina Could Impact North Carolina Motorists


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.
