ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - The historic rains in South Carolina have delayed completion of a new Interstate 95 interchange in Orangeburg County by about six months.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg (http://bit.ly/1NMXV4s ) reports that work began on the interchange at U.S. 301 near Santee in October of last year and was to have been completed last month.

But last month’s heavy rains forced the closing for a time of a 13-mile stretch of the interstate including where the work is being done. Now the project isn’t expected to be finished until April.

The project involves adding to the interchange so there is full access to both highways. It had been a partial interchange because it was built four decades ago when a section of I-95, then under construction, ended at the exit.
