The I-20 Widening Project located in Lexington County will be prompting daytime lane closures over the next two weeks in order to complete the final asphalt pavement section on I-20 located west of the SC-6 interchange.

Motorists are advised to use caution and plan accordingly in case of the following delays.

Westbound single lane closures will be installed between mile markers 53-54, which began Monday. The lane closure will be implemented from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day through Thursday. Upon completion of the westbound travel lanes, eastbound single lane closures will also be installed between mile markers 53-54, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Thursday.

Holiday lane closure restrictions will be enforced starting Wednesday, Nov. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 28.

The road work is part of a four-phase project to widen an 11-mile stretch of I-20 in Lexington County. The project extends from mile marker 60 near US 378 to mile marker 49 at Longs Pond Road. Upon completion, the project will add a third inside lane in both directions aimed at reducing traffic congestion.

It is expected to be completed during the winter of this year.
