SCDOT plans meeting in Springdale to discuss washed out dams

Springdale, SC (Paul Kirby) - Representatives from the SC Department of Transportation have scheduled a community meeting to bring the area’s residents updates on the status of the Wilton Road and Durham Drive dams. Both of these dams were so damaged during the floods of the fall of 2015 that it necessitated closing the roads that ran across them. Those roads have been closed and detours have been in place for almost three years now.

Several meetings have already been held by the SCDOT to explain the problems of repairing these dams and the roads that cross them. In both cases, it has been established that the dams themselves, not just the roads and road beds that ran across them, were sufficiently damaged as to make them unsafe to repair the roads according to DOT officials in past meetings. Now, this meeting has been scheduled to update the community and other interested parties regarding the status of what will be done, or if these roads will even be reopened.

The meeting will be held on Monday, August 13, 2018 at 6 pm at Platt Springs Methodist Church, 3215 Platt Springs Road.Mayor Michael Bishop, the other elected and appointed officials of Springdale, and other community leaders are urging the community to attend. One said, “This is your opportunity to hear first hand where the SCDOT stands on these projects. I don’t know if they will allow much community comment, but if you feel strongly about those roads and the condition they are in, you need to be at this meeting and hear what is said.”
