Highway work planned for Seneca

Sister station WGOG reports that federal aid is being applied to Highway 123 and Highway 130 in Seneca, if all goes well, the remake of that busy intersection will start early next year. South Carolina DOT officials confirmed that re-surfacing of Highway 123, from Old Salem Road to Lindsay Road, is the highest rated Oconee County project in the state’s 2014 Federal Aid Pavement Improvement Program. The project is to include new turning lanes to help facilitate traffic. According to Eddie Adams, DOT commissioner from Seneca, the work is an extension of a multi-year effort to repave Highway 123 in Oconee County. Because of the volume of traffic the intersection receives, some special consideration is likely, including that at least some of the work will be done at night. Adams estimates the project could cost $1.2 million.
