MAIN LOOP:  West of Summerville/Charleston, Old Beech Hill Rd is in extremely poor condition between Sandpit Dr and Hill Branch Rd. Until this is resolved, consider detouring using Old Beech Hill Rd between Sandpit Dr and Hwy 61 (Givhans Ferry State Park).


** UPDATE (Nov 29, 2021): SCDOT states that the road is in rough shape, but not closed. Caution is advised, and the above detour is a viable option if road conditions appear impassible.

** Special thanks to Billy Chapman, John Grilli, Joe Korn, and Dana Brown for your reports and reconnaissance!
