SCDOT has discovered a slope failure on University Parkway that threatens the integrity of the roadway. SCDOT is planning to close University Parkway between Doctors Drive and Physicians Court to repair the damage to the slope.

SCDOT will close the road Today, March 15 before the storm moves, and they anticipate it will be closed until April 1. The 2.5-mile detour will direct traffic to US 1 (Richland Avenue West) and S.C. 118 (Robert M. Bell Parkway).

While this closure will be an inconvenience to the community, SCDOT pledges to expedite the completion of this repair.
