Starting Tuesday, drivers can expect traffic issues on Interstate 77 near Rock Hill for the next two weeks when lanes will close for bridge repair work.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation will close two of the four northbound lanes for a two-mile stretch, according to a press release. Weather permitting, the SCDOT said the repairs should be complete July 8.

The work will begin at mile-marker 80, north of the Dave Lyle Boulevard interchange, to mile marker 82, which is north of the Celanese Road interchange. The SCDOT will be closing the two right lanes.

The left two lanes will remain open, but the SCDOT warns that drivers should expect traffic and delays. The SCDOT recommended motorists find alternate routes for the next two weeks to avoid traffic.
