South Carolina Highway 262 (SC 262) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It serves primarily as the southern border of Fort Jackson.

Route description[edit]

Starting from Garners Ferry Road, it connects with Interstate 77 before continuing on a relatively straight two-lane road to US 601.

History[edit]

Established in 1937 or 1938 as a new primary route going east, it started off as a 7 miles (11 km) paved stub road, going east from US 76. In 1940, it was extended along a dirt road to US 601; which was later paved by 1942. In 1948, it was briefly decommissioned, but reinstated a year later. Since its inception, it has served as the southern boundary for Fort Jackson for its entire length.[2]
