SCDOT Crews Prepare for Winter Weather
web posted January 25, 2013
COUNTY – There is a winter storm predicted
to impact South Carolina beginning Friday, Jan. 25. Current forecasts
for severity and accumulation vary widely as well as the counties that
will be affected. As the storm event gets closer, it is expected that
the forecasts will be more consistent. Currently, the affected area is
predicted to be west of I-95 and north of Interstate 20. It is very
likely that road conditions will be very poor if a significant storm
hits.SCDOT will focus primarily on interstate routes and move to lower
priority routes as conditions allow.
SCDOT’s response varies by area of the state:
In Kershaw, Lee Lexington and Richland counties, crews will begin
Friday as a normal day and will be prepared to respond dependent upon
the event severity. Snow and ice equipment is being hooked up. Crews
will report Friday afternoon and evening if needed.
In Abbeville, Anderson, Greenwood, Laurens, and Newberry counties,
SCDOT crews will be pretreating with salt brine. These operations
are scheduled to begin no later than 7 a.m. with the interstates as the
first priority followed by the county’s bridges.
McCormick, Edgefield, and Saluda counties will begin Friday as a normal
day. The weather forecast will be monitored and adjustments will be
made as necessary.
In Aiken, Barnwell, Calhoun, Clarendon, Orangeburg, Bamberg, Allendale
and Hampton counties, salt spreaders will be loaded Friday morning.
Each county will be monitoring conditions and have crews on standby, if
The State Traffic Management Center will be operational.
The SCDOT Director of Maintenance staff is monitoring the forecast and
