COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina transportation officials are reminding drivers to expect heavy congestion on Interstate 26 in Richland County because of work to repair damage caused by a multi-vehicle wreck last month.

Officials advise motorists to use alternate routes this weekend if possible.

The crash on May 27th involved a fuel tanker, which caused an extensive fire at that damaged the barrier walls and roadway. The damaged area is located between the Piney Grove Road and St. Andrews Road exits, about one mile west of the I-20 interchange.

The contractor intends to install lane closures on the inside travel lane in both directions that will remain in place until 6 a.m. Monday.

Additional nightly lane closures can be expected through June 29.
