South Carolina transportation officials have closed down part of a major highway in northern Greenville County after discovering a hole in one of its bridges.
State Department of Transportation (SCDOT) officials said Thursday that law enforcement had shut down the U.S. Highway 25 bridge over Beaverdam Creek. The bridge is located about 10 miles northeast of Slater-Marietta, and 3 miles north of the U.S. 25-SC 11 intersection.
An SCDOT spokesman had little information Thursday afternoon, saying officials had closed the northbound bridge to traffic. Vehicles heading north are being rerouted via SC 11 to Interstate 26.
An SCDOT crew was on location surveying the bridge. The spokesman said the agency would have more information in a later press release.
