South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) held a ceremony
Thursday, Sept. 27, to mark the completion of three Interstate 385
The event was held atop the bridge crossing I-385 at Harrison Bridge Road, Simpsonville (Exit 26).
Carolina State Representative Garry Smith presided. Speakers included
South Carolina Secretary of Transportation H.B. “Buck” Limehouse Jr.; South
Carolina State Senator David Thomas; former SCDOT Commissioner Howell
Clyborne; SCDOT District Engineering Administrator Steve Gwinn; and U.S.
Constructors President Randy Snow.
three vital interchanges completed along I-385 are West Georgia Road,
Fairview Road and Harrison Bridge Road. The Interstate went from 4 lanes
to 6 lanes with a concrete wall in the median throughout entire length
of the project. The secondary roadways went from a 2 lane ditch section
to a 5 lane concrete curb and gutter with sidewalk throughout the
project limits. The improvements to the interchanges were increased
safety, all were brought up to Interstate Standards and Federal
guidelines, and traffic flow was improved on all three interchanges.
