South Carolina Highway 160 (SC 160) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It runs from North Carolina state line, through the towns of Tega Cay and Fort Mill, ending in Indian Land.

Route description

SC 160 begins at the North Carolina state line near the Steele Creek area of Charlotte, North Carolina. Going southeast, it crosses Gold Hill Road in Tega Cay before entering Fort Mill. The highway goes through the downtown area of Fort Mill, connecting briefly with U.S. Route 21 Business (US 21 Bus.). Continuing east, it ends at US 521 in Indian Land. The route width varies between two lanes and five lanes.[2]

Alternate names

Though the highway is commonly known as "SC 160" or "Highway 160" throughout the state, the highway does have other known names it uses locally in areas.

  • Fort Mill Highway – road name of highway west of Fort Mill to Lancaster County, though sometimes used interchangeably for entire route.

History

The highway was established in 1942 as a renumbering of the second SC 211. The route has changed little since.[4]
