All lanes of I-85 reopen following emergency repairs in Greenville Co.
GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) announced that a section of I-85 was temporarily shut down this week for emergency repairs.
Officials said the repairs, which started Tuesday night, temporarily shut down the inside lane of the northbound and southbound directions of I-85 near mile marker 52. As of Thursday night, the SCDOT confirmed that all lanes were back open.
According to officials, crews were repairing the drainage system along the median wall under the shoulder of that area. Water dripping from a pipe under the road was causing erosion and pavement settling along the interstate.
They added that this repair would prevent further damage to the system that could cause additional closures.
