FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Northbound traffic is delayed by an emergency lane closure on I-95 northeast of Florence to fix a “significant hole” in the Big Pee Dee River Bridge, according to the South Carolina Department of Transportation.

The lane closure is in the right northbound lane of I-95 at mile marker 175, but as of 12:30 p.m., traffic appeared to be backed up for over five miles due to the closure.

The repairs are expected to be completed on Tuesday, SCDOT stated.
