According to information from SCDOT’s Twitter, I-95 is being closed at mile marker 175 in both directions due to high water levels at the bridges crossing the Great Pee Dee River. In addition, there are still segments of I-95 in North Carolina closed beginning at mile marker 13.  

Detour routes for I-95 southbound traffic are Exit 181 A ( Highway 38 East) to US 301 south to Florence.

Detour routes for I-95 northbound traffic (local) are Exit 164 US Route 52 north to US Route 401 north to US Route 15 north, to SC Route 38 east, to I-95. 

Detour routes for I-95 northbound traffic (thru state) from Georgia are I-95 northbound to I-26 westbound to I-77 northbound into North Carolina. From Florence, you can go I-20 westbound to I-77 northbound into North Carolina.

There are widespread road closures due to flooding on primary and secondary routes throughout the Pee Dee, according to the SCDOT.
