I attended my first South Carolina Department of Transportation meeting back in May. Those meetings can be informative.

You can already see some of the proposed alternate routes and development points in the presentation here:

Would be nice to know what they plan to do to Woodruff itself but it sounds like they're not sure yet. Extending the new PNG connector road across I-85 somehow I think could help. Otherwise I think they're wasting a lot of money and effort in alternate routes instead of fixing the interchanges over I-85 and I-385.

Bike Lane. Really? Aren't we supposed to work on decreasing traffic jams instead of increasing it? It would be suicide to ride on that road.

I am hoping the alternative selected will be the route closest to Woodruff Road with termini at Woodruff Road and Mall Connector Road and at Miller Road on the Woodruff Road side of the General Electric railroad spur.

The proposed route will need to relieve congestion on Woodruff Road and benefit Verdae and Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research.

LOL. I agree .Just wait. By then many of the big boxes will have left Woodruff for newer buildings and developments further out like they left Laurens Rd a ghost town after it was widened to move to Woodruff Rd.

I predict in 5 years retail re-development will take off on Laurens - parts of this road have 6 lanes - the new Verdae development will attract upscale shopping and the Bi-Lo shopping center should undergo a facelift once Bi-Lo folds - any Laurens Road development will take pressure off Woodruff, esp for residents from Pleasantburg, Parkins Mill, Verdae, and south DT Greenville.
