ADHS corridor WEdit
US 25, from I-85 to the North Carolina state line, is part of the Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS), which is part of Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC). Of the 30.7-mile (49.4 km) section of US 25, only 22.9-mile (36.9 km) was authorized for ADHS funding. In the 2013 fiscal year, South Carolina completed Corridor W and also became the first state to complete its entire ADHS miles among all 13 Appalachian states. The entire section of US 25 along Corridor W boasts a four-to-six-lane limited-access road, with interchanges at major intersections.
Established in 1927 as an original US highway, it was assigned to the entirety of SC 21, which was removed the following year. Traveling closely as it does today, it went from North Augusta to Travelers Rest, connecting the cities and towns of Edgefield, Greenwood, Ware Shoals, and Greenville.
In 1937, US 25 was rerouted in Greenville, moving onto College Avenue from Main Street to Buncombe Street. By 1961, US 25 was moved onto a new bypass east of North Augusta, leaving US 25 Bus. In 1963, Ware Shoals was bypassed east, leaving another US 25 Bus. In 1964, US 25 was rerouted onto new primary routing east of Travelers Rest, leaving Main Street to US 276 and Poinsett Highway downgraded to secondary (today now an unsigned US 25 Conn).
By 1969, US 25 was rerouted onto a western bypass of Greenville, replacing SC 250; the old alignment was replaced by US 25 Bus. Also in same year, US 25 was given its current eastern bypass around Greenwood, leaving US 25 Bus along its old alignment along Main and Montague Streets. In 1973, US 25 was rerouted in northern Greenville County onto new modern ascent along the Saluda Mountains; the old route was downgraded to secondary (Old Highway 25 - S-23-969).
