US 221 in Georgia comes from the Augusta region and crosses the Savannah River, which forms the border with South Carolina, via the J. Strom Thurmond Dam. US 221 then follows the reservoir to the north and is a single-lane road through the woods and countryside of western South Carolina. Via McCormick the route leads to Greenwood, a larger town on the route. Greenwood has an eastern bypass, which US 221 uses. To the east one crosses Lake Greenwood. Near Laurens you cross the Interstate 385. The road then heads through the wooded countryside to Spartanburg, the largest town on the route.
US 221 runs right through Spartanburg and crosses Interstate 26 and Interstate 85 just outside the city. US 221 runs straight through the center of Spartanburg and is mostly a four-lane road in the region, partly with a center turn lane. Then comes the countryside in northern South Carolina. After Chesnee, the border with North Carolina follows, from where US 221 in North Carolina continues to Marion.

US 221 was added to the US Highways network in 1930, but at the time only passed through North Carolina. In 1932, the route was extended from Ingalls, North Carolina to US 25 at Greenwood, South Carolina. This was the southern starting point for a long time. In 1954, the route was extended south to Perry, Florida, creating the southern portion of US 221 in South Carolina.
The extension of US 221 into Georgia coincided with the construction of the J. Strom Thurmond Dam on the border between the two states, which was completed in 1954. US 221 runs over the dam. In the early 1960s, the southern approach road from Spartanburg was widened to 2×2 lanes, presumably to coincide with the construction of I-26. In the late 1960s, the Greenwood bypass was constructed, over which US 221 was routed in 1970. Greenwood is now one of the largest towns in South Carolina with no freeway.
In the 1970s, US 221 between Chesnee and Spartanburg was widened to a 5-lane road with a center turn lane. In the early 1990s, US 221 between Lake Greenwood and Greenwood was widened to a 2×2 divided highway. In the mid-1990s, the section between I-26 and Woodruff was widened to 2×2 lanes.
US 25 in South Carolina
|Get started||North Augusta|
US 25 is a US Highway in the US state of South Carolina. The road forms a north-south route through the west of the state, from the Georgia border through Greenville to the North Carolina border. US 25 is 224 kilometers long in South Carolina.
US 25 in Georgia comes from Augusta and crosses the Savannah River to get to South Carolina. The route heads north and crosses Interstate 20. The route is a single carriageway until Greenwood, after that the road is a divided highway for about 80 kilometers until Greenville. US 25 runs right through the town of Greenville and intersects with Interstate 85. North of Greenville, the route is a divided highway with 2×2 lanes, after which the border with North Carolina follows. US 25 in North Carolina then continues toward Asheville.
US 25 was one of the original US Highways of 1926. Its southern starting point was North Augusta, South Carolina at the time. In 1929 the route was extended into Georgia. US 25 has been considered one of the primary US Highways in the state since its inception, connecting Augusta, Greenville, and Asheville.
The first upgrades to the route were made after 1960, in the early 1960s the route through North Augusta was widened to 2×2 lanes, until the later connection to I-20. The passage through Greenwood was also widened, as well as the southern approach road from Greenville and a short distance north of Greenville to Travelers Rest. In 1969, Greenville’s western bypass opened to traffic, with US 25 being routed over it. In the early 1970s, US 25 was widened to 2×2 lanes further north from Greenville, including a new route in the Appalachian Mountains to the North Carolina border in 1973.
Subsequent upgrades to the US 25 did not follow until the late 1990s. The stretch from Greenwood to Greenville was widened to a 5-lane road with center turn lane in the late 1990s or early 2000s. In 2016-2017, US 25 between North Augusta and Trenton was widened to 2×2 lanes.
US 276 in South Carolina
US 276 is a US Highway in the US state of South Carolina. The road forms an east-west route that actually runs more north-south in the north of the state, from the North Carolina border through the town of Greenville to Interstate 385 at Mauldin. US 276 is 86 kilometers long in South Carolina.
US 276 enters South Carolina through the Appalachian Mountains and then descends to Marietta, where the divided highway to Greenville begins. In Greenville one crosses Interstate 85 and US 25 and US 29. Then the 2×2 road goes a little further south to Interstate 385 at Mauldin, which then continues towards Columbia.
US 276 was added to the US Highways network in 1932. The eastern terminus at the time was Laurens, which was extended to Clinton in 1959. In 1984 the route was shortened again to Mauldin.
In the early 1960s, US 276 between Greenville and Mauldin and between Greenville and Traveler’s Rest was widened to a 2×2 divided highway . The freeway between Mauldin and Clinton was built in the 1960s and became only part of Interstate 385 in 1984.
US 276 runs through Caesars Head State Park, a mountainous area that contrasts sharply with the otherwise fairly flat state of South Carolina. The US 276 rises here to almost 980 meters above sea level. This makes US 276 the highest thoroughfare in the state.
