Luckily traffic wasn't bad and we moved right along. Somewhere around Hardeeville there were two smallish text-heavy signs next to the interstate about public comment wanted. Not sure how anyone was supposed to read the signs at 70+ MPH, but they apparently refer to the call for comments the on the I-95 Widening Project in Jasper County between MM 8 -MM 21 (see https://www.scdot.org/projects/press-releases-MileMarker8-MM21.aspx). Per the news release, preliminary engineering will be done this year but construction won't start until 2026. There is also another call for comments on the next section from MM 21 to exit 33 (see https://www.scdot.org/projects/press-releases-MileMarker21-MM33.aspx). That construction won't start until 2028. Perhaps (if interstates still matter) I-95 will be widened for its entire length in South Carolina by the turn of the next century.

"Comments will be accepted until the close of business on August 11, 2022."
Damn! If I only knew about this before then.  :-(

I was hoping there would be more details on their PDF files. I'm also disappointed they're not covering anything south of Exit 8. Today I reconsidered a replacement for the northbound off-ramp at Exit 5 that included the entrance to the Welcome Center.

Here's my idea for the new Exit 5, more or less:

Hey, did you know that the majority of Bridge Reports for bridges in Jasper County are rated at either fair or poor condition, including those along I-95?

Still in progress as of late October. Not fun to travel indeed.

According to the i-85 South Carolina site, MM 98-106 is scheduled for completion next month.  The rest of it not until late 2024.

Indeed, a couple of weeks ago I went through going northbound.  After you cross the Broad River, you have three striped asphalt lanes with barrels blocking the right lane.  So much smoother than the temporary patchwork work zone pavement, and even though the lanes arenít fully opened, itís nice to not have the claustrophobic feeling that the cattle chutes give.

One reason why the rest of it is taking longer, IMO, is because itís mostly being built in concrete.  Also they have been fixing some of the superelevation issues.
