End in sight for new Anderson highway
Work begins today on the final surface for the East-West connector, a new multi-lane highway in Anderson County that should provide a safer way for motorists in the northern part of that county to reach Anderson shopping areas. Marty McKee of Seneca’s Thrift Development says his company envisions the official opening of the five-lane highway by the end of August. From highway 81 near T-L Hanna High School to Tucker’s on the Clemson Boulevard, the project has been two and a half years in the making. McKee attributes the length of the work to changes made in the project, including changing the highway from two to five lanes.
