There is no way this road can handle the addition of more stuff! It was a parking lot today. Traffic was backed up even on Verde Boulevard, down I85\385 interchange, and at every exit. Goodness!

It was bad yesterday too. Friday afternoons and weekends/holidays are very congested. Yesterday there was an accident in front of Walmart (I am guessing someone impatiently pulled out, as is often the case). The ambulance had a rough time getting through the "parking lot." If you can, get on Roper Mountain Road, which parallels Woodruff and go that way. That's what I do.

You seem surprised. The Magnolia Park development is going to happen whether we like it or not due to the site being zoned PD.

Woodruff Road isn't so much a road as it is a hangout.

I, too, happened to be sitting in this "parking lot" today - I typically never use Woodruff (unless I need to get to Target or Trader Joe's) - I always utilize Millennium Blvd, Miller Road, or East Butler Road. I've said it before - this is the most poorly planned road in the entire Greenville area - I'm just amazed that this road is not 6 lanes - it's boggles my mind that both Pleasantburg and (good grief) Wade-Hampton are both 6 lanes with Woodruff (being the center of commerce in the entire Upstate) is only 4! SCDOT, the city of Greenville, and Greenville county need to plan ahead and collaborate - I suppose this will only happen when businesses suffer on this excruciating corridor.

I saw a whole lot of stupid this afternoon around Shops of Greenridge and Whole Foods. I did have one nice person let me over into the left lane after I got on Woodruff Rd from 85 Northbound so I could turn into Greenridge. After that, it was a hell of an afternoon. My wife and I have decided no more Woodruff Rd on a Saturday.

I just laugh when I hear people complain about Woodruff Rd traffic. If you want to see some REAL traffic go to Charlotte or Atlanta. Woodruff Rd is nothing. Laurens, Wade Hampton and Pleasantburg were all widened to six lanes to handle the big boxes then all the retailers packed up and left for Woodruff which was 2 lanes when Wal-mart was the first to go. So if the businesses suffer its their own fault.

I'm familiar with both cities. Parking lot is parking lot! Can't get worse than not moving. Period!

Not surprised, just watching it change.
