Sep 28
I-85 Widening Project Exit 95 Temporary Closure - Spartanburg & Cherokee Counties

Upstate motorists should anticipate the closure of Exit 95 (Pleasant School Road), beginning on or after October 4, 2021, for approximately nine months. This closure originally scheduled for September 28 was delayed due to weather. During this time, all the Exit 95 ramps and the overpass will be closed. 

I-85 southbound traffic will be detoured to Exit 96, crossing Shelby Highway from the I-85 off-ramp and traveling west on Wilcox Avenue (S-11-668) to access the Exit 95 area.  

I-85 northbound traffic will be detoured to Exit 96, turning left onto Shelby Highway from the I-85 off-ramp and then left onto Wilcox Avenue and traveling west to access the Exit 95 area.  I-85 northbound traffic desiring to access the area south, near Gaffney, will follow the signed detour to Exit 96, instead of turning right from the Exit 96 off-ramp onto SC 18, then turning right and continuing on SC 18 to access the Exit 95/Gaffney area. Detour maps have been provided on our project website listed below.
