The ultimate new ramp on the $300 million I-85/I-385 Gateway Challenge in Greenville, South Carolina, is now open.

The three-year venture to improve the busy interchange, which handles greater than 220,000 autos a day, provides Interstate 385 six lanes between Simpsonville and downtown Greenville and widens I-85, in accordance with the S.C. Division of Transportation.

The contractor for the venture was a three way partnership of Flatiron contractors and Zachry Building Corp.

The venture created a brand new interchange throughout the normal footprint of the previous interchange. New lanes, ramps and bridges have been constructed whereas site visitors continued to make use of the prevailing interchange. The venture included 10 new bridges, two of that are flyovers, and rehabilitating two bridges.

The SCDOT says the interchange was one the state’s main street priorities, and the company will now give attention to the I-20/26/126 interchange in Columbia, often known as “Malfunction Junction,” and the I-526/I-26 interchange in Charleston.
