Anticipated Delays Due to Repaving Project in Aiken’s Southside

Travelers in Aiken’s Southside should prepare for anticipated traffic delays as the South Carolina Department of Transportation begins a large-scale repaving project, set to commence June 24, 2024.

Repaving Efforts Aimed at Enhancing Safety and Driver Experience

The repaving initiative aims to provide a smoother and safer driving experience for motorists. Aiken city officials reported that East Pine Log Road — a key component of downtown Aiken’s bypass — spans from Silver Bluff Road down to Charleston Highway. This road, designated as S.C. Route 302, will undergo significant resurfacing during this project.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation announced that the repaving project is part of a wider $11.92 million plan to enhance primary roads in Southside Aiken. Locations include East Pine Log Road, Richland Avenue, Whiskey Road, and Richardson’s Lake Road.

Traffic Delays and Closures to Expected Until Fall

Motorists should prepare for daily lane closures, beginning from the project’s start date. According to the Department of Transportation, these closures are set to continue until project completion in the fall of 2024. Road users are encouraged to find alternative routes or plan for likely delays during this construction period.

Working Towards a Safer Future for Aiken’s Roads

The repaving initiative underlines the government’s dedication to upholding road safety and improving overall travel conditions in the Southside.

In the long term, these essential upgrades will drastically reduce the number of accidents resulting from poor road conditions, ensure a smoother and safer commute for all motorists, and add value to the city’s infrastructural aesthetic.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation and city officials seek understanding and patience from the public, as they work to achieve a safer and more efficient roadway system throughout Aiken’s Southside.
