Lexington County Road Improvements

January 14, 2021 | Posted By: Visitor Center

Transportation improvements are a topic of interest in Lexington County. For this reason, the Lexington Chamber is sharing information on this important topic:

The South Carolina Department of Transportation has some good news to share about the US 1 over I-20 Interchange Improvement Project in Lexington County, SC.

Roadway design has been underway since the summer of 2020 and construction will begin in 2021!

After hosting a public meeting in March 2019 and reviewing all of the comments, SCDOT began a year-long effort to select a construction and design team. The Superior/JMT Design-Build Team won the job by offering the best value and quality for the price. Their innovative design, seen in the attachment and image (CLICK HERE), provides substantial safety and operational benefits, saves tax dollars, and minimizes right-of-way and environmental impacts. Superior Construction will also coordinate with the I-20 widening project to keep both projects moving forward as quickly as possible.

As quarterly updates are available, we will continue to share with you the construction schedule.

If you have questions or comments about the project, please do not hesitate to reach out to SCDOT Resident Engineer, John Burns, PE at burnsjm@scdot.org.
