Right now almost 100 miles of I-95 in S Carolina is closed due to flood damage with no reopen dates available. Much of Charleston is under water and according to this morning's news, actually getting worse as flood waters flow from the Columbia area towards the ocean. What it will be like by early November is anybody's guess but I would suggest checking road reports very closely as your journey time approaches.

2 SC road sites for you -

South Carolina 511

Getting Around in SC

I-95 is blocked by flooding around the Black River near Kingstree. The detour from Florence is I-20 to Columbia, I-77 and then I-26 back to I-95

It looks like US 17 is open.

I would be very surprised if I-95 isn't open by the middle of next week.

I was watching the snooze here in GA yesterday and they mentioned that due to the flooding several bridges and overpasses are not ranked as dangerous due to the ground below them washing away..

I will not go into what I think of this but I'm from Michigan where I do not think that is possible. (They pile drive to bed rock). Of course in parts of Michigan that is like six inches below the grass).

They are working night and day to fix this, but before you go visit the state's close road list.. You may want to take a more westerly route.
Home is where I park it!

South Carolina officials say the foundations under some bridges on Interstate 95 have washed out, and they can't say when a 13-mile stretch of one of the most important highways on the East Coast will be open.

South Carolina Transportation Secretary Christy Hall said Friday that the problems are on 18 separate small bridges that go over the Black and Pocotaligo rivers and surrounding swampland in Clarendon County.

Hall says a contractor will begin to fix the foundations Saturday and work night and day. But she says she can't say how long that will take.

Other bridges in the area are also damaged, so travelers on I-95 that would normally drive 74 miles from Interstate 26 to Interstate 20 are having to take a 168-mile detour through Columbia.
