I-26 Widening & Rehabilitation Project

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) welcomes you to the official Website for the I-26 Widening and Rehabilitation Project.

The project is being completed using the design-build method. Rather than using a traditional design contract to create a design and then getting bids from contractors to construct the design (known as design-bid-build), a design-build contract allows the design and construction team to work together for solutions, schedule, and cost savings. The Design-Build Contractor with the best prices and schedule was contracted to design and build the improvements to this segment of I-26.

The project begins just East of the I-77Interchange (MP 115) and continues to SC Route 6 Caw Caw Road (MP 136) in Lexington and Calhoun Counties.

Interstate 26 will be widened from four to six lanes beginning just east of the I-77 interchange (MP115) and ending just east Old Sandy Run Road (MP 125.5). The interstate will be rehabilitated between Old Sandy Run Road (MP 125.5) and SC 6 (Caw Caw Road) (MP 136). The completed project will improve safety and increase capacity for the estimated 59,000 vehicles per day that use this segment of interstate.

Project Schedule

Construction began on November 17, 2013 and is estimated to be completed in Summer 2016.
