I still think this is a conspiracy by the state government located in Columbia to screw us in the upstate for landing BMW but that's just my opinion: $45 million project approved for I-385 - Local / Metro - The State

Maybe Lindsey Graham is behind it too...it's well known the Upstate is not very fond of that guy.

I have come to the conclusion that the SCDOT in this state is mentally retarded. Most places would make the southbound side one lane in each direction. Sounds like someone in Columbia doesn't like the upstate.

Spartanburg is part of Columbia. They hate Greenville. Why do you think they're re-routing the traffic through Spartanburg instead of Laurens? It's a conspiracy by the state to get rid of Greenville. Oh and the SCDOT's main office is located in Columbia.

All state agencies' main offices are in Columbia. Do you know why? Because it's the state capital.

If Greenville was the state capital, they wouldn't be closing down the interstate I bet. They just want Greenville to suffer economically instead of leaving one side of the interstate open to traffic going both ways. It's a conspiracy. It's like balloon boy.

Riiiiiiggghhhhtttt....it's all just one big conspiracy theory. And that's also why the state ports authority is so slow and ineffective to the point where Savannah's and Norfolk's ports have surpassed Charleston's, because the state wants Charleston to fail too. We could keep this up for days.

As long as they don't shut down I-85 Greenville will be fine. That's the biggest interstate in Greenville.
