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.
The entire route is in Richland County.
