Just read on Greenville online that Woodruff Rd. will undergo $245 million dollar upgrade. Wow! I guess we will always be the orange cone capital but with a traffic count of 200k cars per day I am sure it is much needed.

Not quite. The $245 million is for this not Woodruff Road: I-85 @ I-385 interchange design & construction There are no "major" improvement projects planned for Woodruff Road at this time.

Two hundred forty-four million dollars is the cost of rebuilding the I-85/I-385 interchange, more than what upgrading Woodruff Road would cost.

Woodruff Road does have two other projects in the "In Design/Development" phase:

1.) Widening to four lanes with median lane from Five Forks Road (SC-296) to South Bennett's Bridge Road (SC-296):

2.) Intersection improvements from I-85 northbound to Carolina Point Parkway:

There really isn't much that could be done anyway to Woodruff Rd between Verde and Butler. I believe that the traffic lights are already synchonized.

Turning lanes where Woodruff intersects Miller & Garlington to the Shops @ Greenridge & the Northbound I-85 ramp could possibly cause the removal of 2 gas pumps & the canopy at Red Robin although not finalized. Adding a exit @ The Shops @ Greenridge & a on ramp to correct 85 to 385 so it shifts closer to I-85. Northbound I-85 to Woodruff to go from 1 lane to 2. Yes it does seem to be a lot of 85 & 385 but anything that mentions The Shops at Greenridge is Woodruff Rd to me. The article states that traffic during construction will be tangled. As much as everyone complains now although they want improvements will surely be upset when the construction starts.
