The South Carolina Department of Transportation made an announcement Friday regarding the upcoming temporarily road closure of Devils Backbone Road.
The road is located near the intersection of Hwy 379 in Leesville.
According to SCDOT representatives, the road closure is necessary for a realignment and construction project to improve safety at the intersection.
The closure will begin Tuesday and is expected to last until May 18, barring delays due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Motorists will be detoured along Ridge Road and Cedar Grove Road throughout the duration of the closure.
