The temporary closing for a portion of S.C. 322/McConnell’s Highway due to road work has been changed to July 22-24.
The work, for a road widening project, had initially been scheduled for July 15-17, but the work has since been rescheduled, the S.C. Department of Transportation said Thursday morning.
The road -- .16 miles east of Eastview Road in Rock Hill -- will be closed beginning at 6 a.m. July 22 and will reopen at 6 a.m. July 24, according to the DOT.
Eagle Construction Co. will complete the work.
The project is part of Pennies for Progress, a 1-percent county tax on certain goods and services to help fund the roadwork.
SCDOT’s recommended detour: From McConnells Highway (322) turn left onto Eastview Road heading toward West Main Street (SC). Turn right onto West Main Street to the intersection of Heckle Boulevard (SC901). Turn right onto Heckle Boulevard to McConnells Highway.
