SC 157 Truck is a truck route for trucks traveling through Kershaw. For its entire 0.7-mile (1.1 km) length, it is concurrent with SC 341 Truck. Its southern terminus is at the intersection of Marion Street and Minor Street which is also where SR 157 has its southern terminus and SR 341 passes through. As trucks are banned on East Marion Street through Kershaw, the truck route bypasses the downtown area. The routes head north along North Minor Street for three blocks to Hilton Street, U.S. Route 601 (US 601). The northbound directions of the two truck routes run along southbound US 601 forming a wrong-way concurrency. At North Hampton Street, the highway reaches U.S. Route 521 Business (US 521 Bus.) and US 601 Bus. Continuing west along Hilton Street, they cross a railroad track before the truck routes terminate at US 521 (North Matson Street). US 601 from this point continues south along US 521 around the west side of the town.
