US 1 runs diagonally through the state of South Carolina. Although it is a north-south route, US 1 in South Carolina runs more east-west. US 1 in Georgia enters the state from Augusta and then parallels Interstate 20 in South Carolina to the capital Columbia. US 1 then parallels I-20 to Camden, then curves northeast, crossing the Great Pee Dee River at Cheraw. US 1 in North Carolina then continues towards Rockingham.
US 1 was one of the original US Highways of 1926 and has always passed through South Carolina. The route of US 1 through South Carolina has not changed significantly since then.
As early as the 1950s, the section between North Augusta and Aiken was widened to 2×2 lanes. In 1957, the new bridge opened over the Savannah River on the Georgia border. At the time, Augusta, Georgia was a significantly larger city than Columbia, South Carolina. Also, in the early 1960s, a short section of Cheraw access roads in the northeast of the state was widened to 2×2 lanes. Around Columbia, US 1 was bypassed by Interstate 20 quite early on, widening Columbia’s arterial roads only because of the suburbanization of the city, mostly to a 5-lane center turn lane. Elsewhere, US 1 is mainly a single-lane road. Due to the abundance of US Highways in eastern South Carolina, US 1 is not very dominant here.

US 29 in South Carolina
|Get started||Hartwell Dam|
US 29 is a US Highway in the US state of South Carolina. The road forms an east-west route through the northwest of the state, from the Georgia border through Greenville and Spartanburg to the North Carolina border. US 29 is 171 kilometers long in South Carolina.
US 29 follows the main transportation corridor in northern South Carolina, passing through the towns of Anderson, Greenville, and Spartanburg. Interstate 85 runs parallel to US 29 for its entire route, making US 29 largely of no more than interurban importance. Only west of Anderson does US 29 run a little further from I-85 because of Hartwell Lake, a large reservoir on the border with Georgia. The route is largely a divided highway in the urban regions, elsewhere the road is single-lane.
US 29 was one of the original US Highways of 1926 and has always passed through South Carolina.
It was one of the most important roads in South Carolina before the construction of the Interstate Highways, already in the 1950s US 29 between Greenville and Spartanburg was widened to 4 lanes. No further upgrades took place because Interstate 85 was completed in 1964 across the entire corridor. However, some parts of the larger towns were later widened to 5 lanes with a center turn lane for local access to businesses and retail.
US 301 in South Carolina
US 301 is a US Highway in the US state of South Carolina. The road forms a north-south route through the east of the state, from the Georgia border through Orangeburg and Florence to the North Carolina border. US 301 is 306 kilometers long in South Carolina.
US 301 in Florence.
US 301 runs generally northeast through South Carolina. The western part to Santee is a divided highway with 2×2 lanes. From Santee to the North Carolina border, US 301 runs parallel to Interstate 95 and is mostly single-lane, although there are some short 2×2 sections around Florence and Dillon. US 301 is largely secondary in nature.
US 301 was added to the network of US Highways in 1932 and then began in Pee Dee on US 76, just east of Florence. In 1934, the starting point was changed to US 15 at Summerton, and in 1949 the route was further extended to Florida, creating today’s US 301 through South Carolina.
Already in the early 1960s, the first parts of US 301 were widened to a 2×2 divided highway, a section between Orangeburg and the connection to I-26, which was probably built at the same time as I-26, and the double numbering with US 76 between Florence and Pee Dee. Between Santee and Florence, I-95 is directly parallel to US 301.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the southern portion of US 301 was extensively upgraded to a 2×2 divided highway between the Georgia and Orangeburg border. This was an approximately 100 kilometer stretch that was widened, partly because no Interstate Highway parallel to this part of US 301 was planned. Despite this, this section of US 301 is of little importance for through traffic, the connecting section in Georgia has never been improved. The US 301 here was a regional connection in southwestern South Carolina that mainly connects a number of small towns.
In the early 1970s, the section between I-26 and I-95 east of Orangeburg was also widened to 2×2 lanes. With this, traffic from Orangeburg to Florence did not have to make the detour via the interchange between I-26 and I-95. The double numbering with US 52 south of Florence was also widened to 2×2 lanes during that period. In the 1970s, the stretch from Latta to Dillon in the northeast of the state was also widened to a narrow four-lane road.
