Repairing the bridges of Kershaw County - Part 1 of 2
Some state-owned bridges moving to the head of the line
McDowell Road Bridge
A bridge crosses over the Little Flat Rock Creek on McDowell Road in rural Kershaw County. The bridge, between Flat Rock Road and U.S. 521, is one of 90 slated for replacement under a special federal aid program by the S.C. Department of Transportation. Currently, the bridge is load restricted to 5 tons per axle and 7 tons gross. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
Drive about 20 miles north of Camden on Flat Rock Road and turn right onto McDowell Road. A little ways down -- a couple of tenths of a mile, maybe -- and the road crosses Little Flat Rock Creek. Not everyone can cross the bridge there, however.
