SC-153 Extension

Project Information

Description

  • Extension of SC-153 from US-123 to Saluda Dam Road
  • Project is a total of three miles in distance
  • Project includes new bridges over Norfolk-Southern Railroad and Hamilton Creek

Purpose

  • To provide residents in the Easley/Pickens area with an alternative route to SC-153 and I-85 without using US-123

Need

  • A large portion of this traffic is through traffic vs traffic to specific destinations along US-123
  • US-123 experiences heavy traffic, especially at peek hours, resulting in starting and stopping traffic that can take a long time to navigate through

Status

  • Project is open and complete
  • Ribbon cutting was held on December 8th, 2020
