Proposed Improvements

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), in conjunction with the Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study (GPATS), City of Mauldin, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) propose to improve Butler Road (S-107) in the city of Mauldin for approximately 1.7 miles from the Mauldin Senior Center entrance to US 276 (N. Main Street). The project is located about 1 mile south of the I-385 interchange at Butler Road in Greenville County.

Based on the purpose and need and preliminary traffic findings, the following are potential improvements to the Butler Road corridor:

  • Construct curb and gutter, a sidewalk on one side, and a multiuse path on the other side of the roadway to tie into the existing facilities
  • Add medians throughout the corridor for access control
  • Intersection improvements:
    • N. Main Street: Widen Butler Road to extend the length of the existing westbound turn lanes to accommodate more vehicles in the turn lanes
    • Hyde Circle/Bon Air Street: improve to accommodate the turning movements of large wheel-base trucks (WB-62) to meet SCDOT design criteria and for left-turn lanes to accommodate the traffic signal conditions
    • Murray Drive/Fairfield Drive: add turn lanes on Murray Drive and potentially realign and/or modify access for Fairfield Drive to improve both intersection and corridor operation
    • Old Mill Road and Bethel Drive: realign and separate intersections to improve operations of both intersections
    • Brookbend Road: modify to have one intersection for entering and exiting the neighborhood
  • Replace existing culverts with two bridges on East Butler Road over Gilder Creek
