Almost as soon as US 25 Bus. crosses the river, it travels over The River Golf Club. It then curves to the north-northwest. Just south of an intersection with the northern terminus of Center Street, it passes the City of North Augusta Municipal Building. Center Street leads to this building, Brick Pond Park, and the Riverfront. Just north of this intersection, the highway curves back to the north-northeast. Just north of Clifton Avenue, it passes Wade Hampton Veterans Park. The business route then intersects the eastern terminus of West Buena Vista Avenue, which leads to Riverview Park and Lions Field, and the northern terminus of South Carolina Highway 125 (SC 125; the western terminus of East Buena Vista Avenue), which leads to the public safety complex and community center. At this intersection, SC 125 Truck begins, concurrent with US 25 Bus. An intersection with Spring Grove Avenue leads to the living history park and North Augusta Elementary School. At an intersection with the eastern terminus of Jackson Avenue, the highway curves to the northeast. Just south of Forest Avenue, they pass a memorial for the Hamburg Riot. Just north of this intersection is Lookaway Hall. They then intersect SC 230 (Martintown Road). Here, SC 125 Truck leaves the business route.
