SCDOT announces Conway’s Main Street Bridge reopen

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Drivers heading in and out of Conway will have a great start to their holiday weekend.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation has announced on social media that it has reopened the Main Street Bridge to traffic around midnight Friday.

South Carolina Rep. Kevin Hardee confirmed to WMBF News earlier Friday there will still be lane closures once the bridge reopens but those will happen at night after rush hour traffic.

The bridge has been closed since January so that South Carolina Department of Transportation could make some repairs. But crews said there was more damage than first thought, so the closure has lasted longer than expected.

Crews have been working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to make sure the bridge will reopen in time for Memorial Day.
