Contractor for New Interchange at I-85 and I-385 Chosen

I'm not sure when this project will have the green light to start tearing up the road, but it will probably be fairly soon.  The time line is to finish in just short of 3 years.  There is a lot of work that will include work from Salters Road up to Pelham Rd, and from Roper Mountain Road to Smith Hines Rd.  It is guaranteed to be a big mess, it will help solve the biggest congestion in our area.  Currently a lot of commuters come up I-385 from residential homes in Simpsonville and the Woodruff Road area, and they run into the heavy I-85 traffic with a lot of trucks. There also has been a lot of discussion about how to alter Woodruff Road at this interchange, so we will see how it all pans out.  Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a bumpy ride for a few years.
