South Carolina Roads - US 221

US 221

All photos are courtesy Lou Corsaro and northbound.

Entering Spartanburg. Inman is not on US 221 at all, but you'll see it pop up again in the photos below.

As I-585 begins, SC 9 leaves US 176 and heads off on its own, resulting in a short US 221 multiplex that yields the great treasure in the first photo (old enough to be missing TO over the 176 and 585 shields). US 221 then splits off and has the interchange with I-585, the last one before it ends to the southeast. SC 9 also has an interchange, but the one missing ramp is onto I-585 NB/US 176 WB, which is the one that leaves Spartanburg and is the reason both routes are only signed along US 221.

NB under I-85 Exit 78. Traffic has been coming north more or less alongside I-85 for a few miles, so why would I-85 SB get the first billing in the advance signs? Luckily, that doesn't matter because the sign is old.
