SOUTH CAROLINA (AP)- South Carolina says Interstate 95 is being reopened in the northern part of the state.
State Department of Transportation officials say the Great Pee Dee River is receding and inspectors were able to check the I-95 bridges over the waterway and clear them for travel Friday afternoon.
The bridges between Florence and Dillon were closed for two days.
Northbound travelers won’t be able to get much further on the main north-south highway on the East Coast. I-95 is closed in both directions a short distance into North Carolina at the Lumber River in Lumberton and officials say will likely remain closed until the end of the month.
