Interstate 95 has reopened in South Carolina on Wednesday after portions were shut down by flooding from Hurricane Florence.

The northbound lanes of I-95 from mile marker 181 to 190 have reopened, the S.C. Department of Public Safety said Wednesday. The southbound lanes of that same section reopened Monday.

Just Tuesday, S.C. officials closed more segments of I-95.

For now, all lanes on I-95 in South Carolina have reopened. The S.C. Department of Transportation in a Wednesday afternoon statement said “preparations have begun to close I-95 in both directions from Exit 164 (U.S. 52) to Exit 181 (S.C. 38) due to the imminent threat of flooding at the Great Pee Dee River.” A timetable for this closure was not immediately available.

Some sections of the interstate in North Carolina still are closed, officials warned. Several sections of I-95 remain flooded in North Carolina as of Wednesday, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation.

One of the nation’s busiest corridors, I-95 runs from Miami to Canada.
