BOILING SPRINGS, S.C. - The Spartanburg County Roads & Bridges Department has partnered with the
County Transportation Committee (CTC) to replace the existing bridge on Belcher Road, across
Lawsons Fork Creek.
We expect construction on this project to begin in the Fall of 2022.
Spartanburg County contracted a flood study of Lawsons Fork Creek, and the study indicated that the 100-year flood elevation was about six feet above the existing bridge elevation.
Testimonies from residents in the area further confirmed the results from that study.
These findings contributed to our proposal for a bridge that would be eight feet higher than the current bridge. This proposed bridge will be slightly downstream from the existing one.
The plan is to keep the existing bridge in place for as long as possible. However, we do expect, at some point in the construction process, to have to close Belcher Road and set up a detour.
We intend to leave the detour in effect for as short of a time as possible, and we’ll keep the public informed of updates along the way.
The contract for this $2.7 million project has been signed with Dane Construction out of
