Pelzer and West Pelzer will be seeing more truck traffic over the next two to three weeks
Outbound Waste Management trucks leaving the Duke energy W.S. Lee plant for the landfill in Homer, Ga. will be using a secondry route for the next three weeks due to repair work being done by the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) on the primary route. According to Duke Energy Spokesperson Emily DeRoberts, District Manager of the SC Government and Community Relations Team for Duke Energy Carolinas, the documented secondary route from early 2015 presented many concerns,so a new alternative secondary route has been designated.
“We have carefully assessed an alternate secondary route that is safer for drivers and the community. We anticipate this route will be used for approximately 2-3 weeks, beginning Monday August 29,” DeRoberts said.
