ABBEVILLE Co., SC (WSPA) – A bridge in Abbeville County has been shut down for more than eight months with no end in sight. Erwin Mill Road is in the middle of the Broadmouth-Turkey Creek fire district.
This one road closure has doubled or tripled response times for first responders in an emergency.
Residents want to know why the S.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) is not making the project a priority and why they pay taxes without the quick services. The bridge closure doesn’t just impact the people on the other side of the call, but the ones trying to get there in a fast manner.
