ROADTRIP: US 221 is Four Lane From Rutherfordton to the South Carolina Line

By D. Lanier Shook                           December 23, 2014

Forest City is an amazing place any time of the year and Christmas is no exception. (Click here to read about one of my favorite diners in Forest City.) But work is work and I had to be in Spartanburg next, so I looked at the map and decided to take 74 back to Exit 178 and then head down 221 to I-85 just east of Spartanburg.

I can give you a early Christmas present by telling you that the road construction is now complete and 221 is four lane all the way to the South Carolina line. The road narrows back to two lane until you reach Chesnee. (Chesnee was beautiful this time of year.) After Chesnee 221 is four lane all the way to I-85.

Except for a few miles just south of the state line this is a great way to travel between Rutherford County and the Upstate.
