I remember when I started the article on U.S. Route 17 in South Carolina, and I erroneously added South Carolina Highway 32 as a hidden state route. I'm starting to think I might've got that info from this list. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 14:53, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Highways 50+ not in table?[edit]

I was wondering why highways above 50 were not in the table? Or have people just not had the time to finish the project? Rocketmaniac (talk) 13:41, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Secondary roads[edit]

Why aren't secondary roads mentioned? According to this, the state DOT owns 62% of the road miles in the state. Doesn't such a large network of secondary roads even merit a mention? (talk) 20:27, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Page 14 (printed Page 184) of this document should be a good enough source, but I'll let others decide. Mapsax (talk) 13:17, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Better late than never, but secondary roads should get a mention somewhere, but I think there are too many for us to try to list accurately. If there were a capstone article about the South Carolina state highway system, then that's where I'd put a paragraph or two about secondary roads. Since that doesn't exist yet, this is where it should go. –Fredddie 22:56, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Why no interstates?[edit]

One would expect a "List of numbered highways in South Carolina" to include interstates. --Cornellier (talk) 22:29, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

@Cornellier: There has been a push of late to correct misnamed lists like this one, so don't expect it to be misleading for much longer. –Fredddie 22:51, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
