Jul 26, 2012
COLUMBIA, SC - July 26, 2012 - The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is seeking public comment for a proposed amendment to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) to include construction funding to improve three bridges associated with the I-26 Rehabilitation Project in Lexington County.
Interstate 26 is slated for rehabilitation from near US 378 at mile-marker 110.5 to US 21at mile-marker 115.4 in the vicinity of West Columbia and Springdale. To provide adequate clearance over I-26 and for any necessary approach work for the bridges, SCDOT proposes to replace the bridges at Leaphart Road (S-30) and Rainbow Road (S-365) and to raise the Old Dunbar Road (S-72) Bridge. It is anticipated that additional right-of-way will be required to implement improvements at these locations. Estimated construction costs for the improvements include:
- Leaphart Road Bridge Replacement - $7.8 million in FY 2013
- Rainbow Road Bridge Replacement - $6.0 million in FY 2014
- Old Dunbar Road Bridge Raising - $2.325 million in FY 2013
