Repairs to I-20 bridge over Savannah River continue

AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WFXG) -

Crews will be working for at least two more days to repair the guardrail on the Interstate 20 bridge over the Savannah River, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. 

One westbound lane starting at the .5 mile marker in South Carolina and continuing over the bridge into Georgia will be closed Monday and Tuesday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day. 

Drivers can expect delays due to the lane closure. Traffic cones and an arrow board will be used to divert traffic into the other lane. 

The lane closure will be removed after repair work stops at 4 p.m. each day. 

The guardrail on the bridge was damaged when a car ran into it around 9:15 p.m. on Feb. 2 and caught fire, according to the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. Deputies said the driver was able to get out of the car but was injured. 

A second accident shortly after that temporarily shut down some more lanes that night.
