The South Carolina Department of Transportation is hosting a public open house to discuss proposed intersection improvements at Boiling Springs Road and Shoally Creek Road.
The open-house meeting, scheduled for 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21, will be held at the Upstate Family Resource Center cafeteria at 1850 Old Furnace Road in Boiling Springs. S.C. DOT representatives will be available to answer questions regarding the proposed project.
The Boiling Springs Road project, also known as the S.C. Highway 9 project, is approximately half a mile long, beginning at Interstate 85 and ending at Rogers Commerce Boulevard. Proposed improvements include widening S.C. Highway 9 to add a third travel lane in each direction from I-85 to the Shoally Creek Road intersection. Improvements also will be made at the intersections of S.C. 9 at Candlenut Lane and S.C. 9 at Shoally Creek Road, according to a news release.
Tentative project schedules for completion of the project will be discussed. Maps of the project study area will be available. S.C. DOT is urging property owners and business owners on or near the project to attend, according to the release.
