Fort Mill road widening project moving forward, meeting set for questions

York County, S.C. (CN2 News) – York County sharing that a significant road improvement project is moving forward in Fort Mill. It’s in the area of Sutton Road/Spratt Street/Fort Mill Parkway and will be widened to five lanes beginning in 2025. It’s all happening on the east side of I-77 to the railroad bridge at US Foods.  They say the two-mile stretch is heavily traveled, carrying about 19,000 vehicles a day. The area has rapidly grown after construction of Fort Mill’s Southern Bypass was completed including many neighborhoods and schools.

York County is holding a drop-in style meeting on Wednesday June 7th at Riverview Elementary School (1300 Spratt Street) from 5pm to 6:30pm.  They will have displays available, and answer questions about the project.

They go on to say, the road widening effort is part of round four of the Pennies for Progress projects approved by voters.   Currently, they say right of way acquisition is underway for properties along the route which we expect to take at least 18 months.  Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025.

Pennies For Progress Program Manager Patrick Hamilton says, “Once the bypass opened all the schools, commercial development, traffic has only compounded year after year, so this is a much-needed project.”

The widening project is the second road improvement effort in this area.  Last year, work began to realign the intersection of Spratt Street and Fort Mill Parkway to allow for better traffic flow.  That work will finish this summer.
