Road improvement construction is underway on Amicks Ferry Road at the site of Lexington-Richland School District Five’s new elementary school in Chapin. This work is associated with adding turn lanes along Amicks Ferry Road and Lake Tide Drive in preparation for the opening of Elementary School 13 in the fall of 2021.

Construction crews will begin working each day within the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) right of way beginning at 9 am until about 4 pm. This road construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of October.

Drivers traveling through this work zone area are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working adjacent to traffic at all times and allow extra time to pass through this area safely. For more information regarding the district’s new elementary school visit www.lexrich5.org/elementaryschool13.
