Motorists will have a smoother time getting to the other side of the tracks in Landrum.

The work was done at the intersection of highways 14 and 176 and at Coleman Road and 176 by the depot.

We were getting some complaints from drivers about how rough the tracks were, said Landrum City Administrator Steve Wolochowicz.

Work began at the Highway 14 intersection early Tuesday morning and was completed on Coleman Avenue by mid-afternoon.
