Traffic Delay in SC

The construction heading south from the NC/SC line is horrendous... Watched truckers pulled to a stop and out of their rigs chatting on the side while the tie ups were at a stop... Seems like the construction is for about 50 miles on 85 south and a good bit on the north side also.... Anyone know of a way to bypass this section while heading south to Georgia....? Any info would be appreciated with a route that would be suitable towing a 30 foot TT....

Take 301 South. 95 has gotten so bad I try and run 301 when ever I can. Much better then stopped and all the wackos trying to make up time!

Sorry that I did not elaborate that I am heading inland in Georgia to the Cumming Area... I 95 is entirely out of the way.... I will be traveling on 81 to 77 to 85.... Need a way around the construction from that route.....
Thanks

It's not really that bad unless you like to speed. Passed thru there twice 2 weeks ago running from Charlotte to Pensacola and back. Single lane thru the Spartanburg area for about 20 miles but smoothly running at about 60 mph. Don't know if it made a difference that both times were Saturdays.

Have you tried the WAZE APP for your phone? If you program your destination, WAZE will send you to better routes as traffic conditions deteriorate

You could take I-77 past Fort Mill to exit 65 (highway 9/ highway 72) which will take you to I-385 to I-185 then I-85 south of the contsruction.

If you want to stay on the interstate you could run I-77 down to Columbia picking up I-20 to I-26 and go north until you hit I-385 then I-185 to I-85 but this is about 40 miles further.

I would suggest planning on weekend travel through this area. On my April trip to Fort Pickens travel was better going south on Saturday than coming pack north on a Thursday.

2 weeks ago towing I-85 Georgia to Greenville to Spartanburg, no real problem. Traffic yes, slow downs yes, but dead stops are about done. Road construction still in several places but where doesn't have some? Biggest tie ups were lane reroutes while they lifted new bridge beams and placed the abutments.

Just be careful with Waze, I use it all time no matter what I'm driving. It's awesome, but it MAY route you through some more difficult streets to navigate with your RV. Nothing an experienced RVer can't handle, but just a heads up if you're not experienced.
