The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) proposes to construct a new Interchange on I-77 to serve the future Scout Motors Manufacturing facility and provide access for future economic development in Blythewood, SC. The project includes a connector road from the proposed Exit 26 to US 21. Portions of US 21 are proposed be relocated to create a grade separated crossing for a new Norfolk Southern Railroad spur line that will serve the Scout facility. A new railroad bridge over I-77 is proposed to provide rail access to the west side of I-77. In addition, widening of northbound I-77 from south of the proposed interchange to Blythewood Road as well as improvements along Community Road are planned. In addition to the SCDOT transportation improvements, Richland County has planned improvements along Community Road and Blythewood Road.
