GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Several bridges are currently under construction in the Upstate.

A new bridge opened June 1, connecting Woodruff Road to I-385 North, according to officials with the Gateway Project. The bridge is the first new bridge to open in the project zone.

Traffic will access on the on-ramp at the same location but the new bridge will take drivers on a slightly different path to the interstate.

A new bridge is also being built over I-85 at Roper Mountain Road. Officials say the bridge is nearing stage 1 completion.

Officials say once traffic is shifted to the new structure, the old bridge will be torn down and stage 2 will be built in the original bridge's location.

Lane closures or detours on the interstate from June 30 to July 9 are restricted by SCDOT.
