Anderson County, S.C. (August 27, 2018) – Anderson County Roads and Bridges Department will close a portion of Shiloh Church Road near Highway 17 in the Wren community on Monday, September 10, 2018 to replace the west bridge near Shiloh Creek Subdivision.  The roadway will be closed between Highway 17 and Cane Hill Drive C-01-0307 for approximately eight to nine months. The new bridge is scheduled to be open to traffic by May 31, 2019.

The existing road and bridge near Highway 17 is too narrow for the volume of trucks using the road.  The new bridge will be a 30-feet long precast concrete hallow-cored slab, 33-feet wide with concrete parapets on each side.  Approximately 1000 feet of roadway near intersection of Highway 17 will be reconstructed.  Estimated construction cost of $240,000 will be funded by Anderson County General Funds and labor and equipment provided by the Anderson County Roads and Bridges Department.

The posted detour will follow Highway 17 north to Hurricane Creek Road.
