Repaving scheduled on I-26 near Landrum

LANDRUM — Westbound drivers on I-26 should expect some delays soon.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation is starting construction from mile marker 5 at the Campobello exit to the North Carolina line past Landrum to put in new guard rails and repave, starting in mid-April.

The interstate is also being widened from 2 to 4 feet, and the road surface’s slope will be modified to make sure it is not too flat or steep.

The project began last October, with the repaving expected to begin in a few weeks.

The eastbound lanes have already been repaved and shoulders widened, so the construction will only affect the westbound lanes.

The SCDOT will also adjust and replace the guardrails on Highway 14 in Landrum to improve sight distance when turning onto Highway 14 from the I-26 Landrum exit, according to officials.
