SC: Route 150 Emergency Bridge Replacement over I-85


SC Route 150 Emergency Bridge Replacement over I-85
Cherokee County, SC (near mile 92.5 on I-85)

Quick work by the South Carolina Department of Transportation kept driver inconvenience to a minimum and saved the Interstate 85 overpass bridge in Gaffney, which was damaged by a tractor trailer. The $3.4 million bridge was completed just 152 days after the accident occurred (about a month ahead of schedule), largely due to the emergency design-build project delivery plan, and was paid in full through federal emergency relief funds. SCDOT also worked with the Federal Highway Administration to expedite the process, saving motorists from construction delays and safety hazards with a damaged overpass.
