CENTRAL, SC (FOX Carolina) -

After a day of heavy rain, rising waters have damaged two bridges near Clemson

Debris flowing through the creek after a day of heavy rain hit the piling, knocking down part of the bridge's support along Jones Mill Road (SC-39-160), according to State Department of Transportation officials.

They said the bridge dropped 4 to 5 feet because of the damage. They've put a detour in place for drivers headed that way.

The Pickens County Sheriff's Office said another road has been closed in the county because of flooding. Todds Creek Road in Central was closed after water from the creek flooded the road, deputies said.
