Gossett Drive closed to thru traffic
A portion of Gossett Drive in Williamston has been temporarily closed to thru traffic due to an ongoing problem of large vehicles striking the railroad trestle. Despite additional signage, a flashing light and a banner on the trestle indicating the low clearance height, a box truck struck the trestle Jan. 24 and a church bus struck it Dec. 22. Unfortunately these are regular occurances. Williamston Mayor Rockey Burgess said the decision was made to make minor repairs and to determine the impact of permanently closing the street. He said the decision was made by the Town, SCDOT and the railroad.
