September 11, 2018 | Posted By: Connor Watkins

If you have traveled through the busy intersection of U.S. 378, Ginny Lane and Corley Mill Roads recently, you may have witnessed utility lines being moved according to a post on Facebook by Rep. Chris Wooten.

This is in preparation for the Corley Mill Gateway improvement project.

The first phase of the project is funded through the hospitality tax. The project includes widening along Ginny Lane, from Sunset Boulevard to Saluda Pointe Drive, creating dual right hand turn lanes.

Additionally, improvements will be made at the I-20 Westbound ramp creating a right-turn at the exit signal, allowing traffic to safely proceed into the left turn lane for Ginny Lane.

In his post, Rep. Wooten stated that no lane closures related to the project would occur during school drop off or pick up hours and that the duration of the project would be approximately five to six months.

Currently, the average daily traffic on U.S. 378 is approximately 32,000 and on Corley Mill Road 9,100.
