The S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) will close Monticello Road to through traffic beginning Jan. 3 to repair a faulty culvert pipe beneath it.

Monticello Road is in the Elgin community and runs from Bailey Road to South Potter Road. During that time, those who normally use the closed off portion will have to use Doc Garris Road as a detour. Follow Kershaw Camden Highway south, then turn left onto Doc Garris and go 1.18 miles to South Potter Road and turn left again. Go .36 miles and Monticello Road will be on the left.

The repairs are expected to be finished Jan. 27. However, according to SCDOT, Monticello Road will reopen Jan. 13. For additional information, call the SCDOT Lancaster Maintenance at (803) 283-3397.
