Springdale’s Wilton Road repair completion date is set for April 30

Road was damaged in 2015 flood.

The completion date on the Wilton Road repair in Springdale is April 30.
Jeremy Yuhas, resident construction engineer for the S.C. Department of Transportation, said that is the target date.

“I’ve been down there to check on it,” said Rep. Micah Caskey, who lives around the block from the work site. “It looks like the progress on it is going great. I know it has taken too long to get this far, but I hope the weather holds, and I am excited and I look forward to the finished product.”

Yuhas said construction crews on the site now are reinforcing a 150-ft. soil slope that was damaged in the 2015 flood. Some called it a 1,000-year flood.

Yuhas said part of the work involves a repair of the soil, while making sure none of the existing infrastructure is disrupted.

“We’re rebuilding it, without disturbing the dam that is there,” he said.

Yuhas said the road was eroded when a torrent of water during the flood churned away the dirt that was supporting the road. “The drainage system was overburdened,” he said. “And it caused the road to erode beneath it.”

The goal, according to Yuhas, ” is to make the soil around the road more structurally sound.

  5. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. kudos

  6. In this grand pattern of things you’ll secure a B+ just for hard work. Where exactly you actually lost us was first in all the specifics. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you just what did work. Your authoring is certainly highly persuasive and this is possibly why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can see the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you seem to unite the ideas which help to make the final result. For now I shall subscribe to your issue but wish in the near future you connect your facts much better.

  7. fantastic post.Never knew this, thankyou for letting me know.
