It was going to be something, sooner or later. That sort of thing is inevitable as vacant property values increase, especially given the pro-development mentality that seems to prevail locally. While some of the earlier proposals might have generated somewhat less traffic, we could do worse than a Sprouts Farmers Market. I only feel sorry for the residents of Heritage Lakes, who are seeing increasing traffic from people cutting through to avoid Woodruff Road and the Hwy. 14 intersection.

14 needs to be four lanes from Pelham to 417. The Woodruff and 14 intersection needs double left turn lanes from all directions (plus a ton of other Woodruff road intersections at lights need double left turn lanes). These are not difficult or complicated ideas.

Widening South Carolina Highway 14 to four lanes from Pelham Road and North Batesville Road to Northeast Main Street in Simpsonville is necessary and overdue. Hartness will provide another legitimate reason why road improvements are needed.

Yes, it's very overdue. The intersection of 14 and Pelham is a terrible bottleneck on normal days. When there is an accident on I-85, people get off on 14 or Pelham to skirt around it creating an even bigger bottleneck at that intersection.

I don't think the Hartness development will spur any changes to 14. In fact Hartness should never have been allowed to buy Smith Rd. from Greenville County considering the added stress it puts on the Pelham and 14 intersection. Greenville County should take it back to alleviate traffic on the growing eastside.

Greenville County owns the mistake of divesting Smith Road to private ownership. When Smith Road was open, it provided a great alternative to bypassing the industries along Pelham Road to reach South Highway 14 and Woodruff Road.
