ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. -

The Airline Road bridge over Beaver Creek in Anderson County is closed. Crews started replacing the existing 1953 steel beam bridge Monday. Completion of this project is expected to take one year.

According to a press release, the new bridge will be 33-feet wide and 60-feet long, with the deck consisting of pre-cast hollow core slabs with an asphalt overlay. The new bridge will use a Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil - Integrated Bridge System (GRS-IBS) foundation, the first of its kind in South Carolina.

The total cost of materials and services for the project is anticipated to be $320,000. All of the bridge and roadway work will be completed by in-house Roads & Bridges crews using county general funds. Additionally, the Anderson County Transportation Committee (ACTC) provided $100,000 of state gas tax C-Funds for purchasing the pre-cast concrete bridge slabs.
