TRAFFIC ALERT: SCDOT Working to Fix Unsafe Roads in Spartanburg; Roads Reopened

Spartanburg Roads Closed for Urgent Repairs

Spartanburg authorities have announced the reopening of roads following critical maintenance work by the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT).

The roads in question, located on both northbound lanes of South Church Street (US 221), had been subjected to inbound traffic closures, as this was a prerequisite to allow SCDOT to launch an inspection and initiate reparations.

Critical Road Repairs Undertaken

SCDOT personnel inspected the condition of the road on Saturday, subsequently placing a plate over the concerned area. This is only a short-term measure, with the aim of maintaining road safety until permanent repairs can be carried out. The roads are now reopened, but the reparation scope might necessitate further temporal closures in the future.

Motorists who typically use these routes can expect some disruptions, but options are available. In fact, there is a detour available: drivers can turn right onto League Street, then left onto Logan Street, and then come back up Bomar Avenue to South Church Street until the road is fully and permanently repaired.

Continued Efforts by SCDOT

This instance is representative of the ongoing efforts by the SCDOT to address infrastructural issues and road safety across the state. By identifying hazard-prone areas and taking immediate action to repair identified issues, the department aims to enhance the safety of all road users and minimize the risk of accidents.

This reporting is based on precise and accurate information from the Spartanburg authorities, ensuring that motorists and members of the public are kept up-to-date on the prevailing situation. Further updates relating to the progress of repair works on South Church Street will be provided as they become available.

For those using these roads regularly, it is advised to monitor the condition and be aware of the instructed detour in order to navigate the situation efficiently. Commuters can use mobile traffic applications to track live updates and avoid any potential traffic snarls in the area while repairs are being conducted.


As Spartanburg grows and expands, maintaining and upgrading the city’s infrastructure becomes increasingly essential to cater to the corresponding rise in traffic. The SCDOT is committed to ensuring that the road network is safe, usable, and meets the needs of all drivers and pedestrians.

Keep informed about the situation and consider alternative routes where applicable, thus contributing to the smoother running of traffic and the expedience of repair works.
