Update On Geer Highway (U.S 276) Resurfacing
MARCH 9, 2023 - SCDOT is resurfacing a portion of U.S 276 that starts just north of the Slater-Marietta area, moves south and ends at White Horse Road Extension. The U.S 276 resurfacing project is a full depth patching with an asphalt surface overlay.
SCDOT started the full-depth patching process in autumn 2022 and should complete that portion of the project by late spring 2023. Full-depth patching replaces severely damaged portions of the roadway and its foundation, helping ensure those areas of roadway don't fail in the future.
Once the full depth patching has been completed, SCDOT will mill the entire portion of the roadway, removing the top two inches of surface and replacing it with a fresh asphalt surface. This process will level out bumpy patches and provide a smooth riding surface. The U.S 276 Resurfacing Project will not be complete until the entire length of roadway has been resurfaced with asphalt as described. Weather permitting, SCDOT expects the new asphalt surface to be in place by the end of summer 2023. SCDOT appreciates the patience of local residents and businesses as we work to complete this project that will provide U.S 276 a smooth traveling surface for years to come.
MONITOR'S NOTE - SCDOT ORIGINALLY PROMISED TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT BY SUMMER OF 2022.
