They don't work. The best part of all though is that the SCDOT decided to spend money to install new interchange lighting between exits 19 and 21 on I-85 in Anderson County when they can't keep the current lighting on I-85 in western Greenville County on.

The SCDOT is crap. Nothing they do makes sense.

SC is not alone in this. Massachusetts comes to mind as one I've experienced first hand.

You don't have to drive far, many parts of Charlotte interstates have been dark for years. The I77 lights were out for a while inside the 485 loop, not sure if they are back on. The best is the I485/I85 interchange west of Charlotte Douglas, not a light to be found anywhere.

We can pay $231 million for a new interchange but can't find the money to fix these lights: Lights in disrepair leave I-85 dark in Greenville Co. - FOX Carolina 21

Least of the road problem when the roads are crumbling. The lighting technology along that stretch is probably decades outdated anyway.

the 85 interstate in SC has better lighting than the beltway in Atlanta. Even the portion in Anderson is lit up like a christmas tree.

There is a long list of roads that need to be repaved before we worry about replacing these lights. I've never really understood why these kinds of lights are needed.

Anyone that doesn't recognize the need for road improvements in SC should have to drive up and down Augusta Road from Ingles in Moonville up the the intersection with Whitehorse Road. The left lanes in both directions are basically one giant pothole that has been patched over and over again.
