New data from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Commissions shows that 11 people have died in the U.S. due to issues with automated driving systems.

Two Orangeburg County bridges are scheduled for repairs.

The S.C. 210 (Vance Road) bridge over Providence Swamp and the U.S. Highway 21 bridge over the Edisto River swamp south of Branchville are scheduled for work.

Work is expected to begin in the summer of 2023 with the projects lasting about 45 days.

The bridge repairs are a part of the South Carolina Department of Transportation’s strategic 10-year plan to repair and rebuild the state’s transportation network

As part of this plan, SCDOT proposes to reduce the number of load-restricted bridges by performing bridge repairs.

The project is part of SCDOT’s Statewide Closed and Load Restricted Bridge Repair Program.

The proposed repairs are designed to improve mobility in the region and extend the service life of the bridges.
