South Carolina Highway 198 (SC 198) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It connects the town of Blacksburg at I-85 exit 102 and the northern terminus of SC 5 with the town of Earl, North Carolina by way of NC 198. Though it physically runs north and south, internal SCDOT data and the only signage of SC 198 at the I-85 / SC 5 intersection indicates that it runs east–west.[1][2]

Route description[edit]

A two-lane rural highway, it traverses 2.66 miles (4.28 km), starting in Blacksburg, it goes north to the North Carolina state line at Buffalo Creek. The highway continues towards Earl and eventually to Patterson Springs.
