Upgrading work for the I-85 route in South Carolina will be carried out by Lane Construction. The project is worth US$181 million and will see an extra lane being added in either direction to the stretch of the I-85 highway that runs through Cherokee County. This project will provide three lanes in either direction, boosting capacity and cutting congestion at peak periods along the route. In addition to building the extra lanes, the contractor will build a number of new interchanges and sections of link roads, while carrying out work on some bridges along the route.
