Just down the road from GSP…

Good afternoon, fair travelers! I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day and were able to visit some cool, exotic places—like Milwaukee or Chicago.

From what I hear, it sounds like we’re not the only ones experiencing some renovations these days. According to my sources, the SCDOT is already preparing for its 85-385 GATEWAY Project, which is scheduled to kick-off early next year.


Here’s what you need to know about the GATEWAY Project:

  • 1-385 will be widened
  • There will be new interchanges, lanes, ramps and bridges added
  • Roper Mountain Road, Woodruff Road, Garlington Road, Miller Road and Chrome Drive will get a makeover

If you haven’t noticed, the team is already preparing for construction. To accommodate these activities, certain lanes between Mauldin Road and Highway 14 are closed during evening hours.

However, there are certain times when lane closure is prohibited. So if you’re on your way to GSP, be sure to plan your schedule accordingly.

Lane closures are prohibited between the following hours:

For I-85:
6AM to 8PM Monday-Friday
9AM to 7PM Saturday
11AM to 8PM Sunday

For I-385:
7AM to 7PM Monday-Friday
11AM to 6PM Saturday
No restrictions Sunday

Everyone around here seems really excited about these changes…apparently they are supposed to be pretty cool. But I think it’s safe to say that nothing is going to be as cool as what’s happening here.

Best wishes, travelers!

Until next time,

– The Wall
