South Carolina Highway 66 (SC 66) is a primary state highway in the state of South Carolina. It serves to connect the community of Joanna with nearby SC 56 and the town of Whitmire.

Route description

SC 66 is a two-lane rural highway that travels 17.6 miles (28.3 km) from SC 56 to SC 72 in Whitmire. It connects to U.S. Route 76 (US 76) and Interstate 26 (I-26). Predominantly in the Sumter National Forest, it meanders through forest lands; in Whitmire, it takes a couple of turns before reaching SC 72 via Central Avenue, Park Street and Glenn Street.[2]

History

SC 66 was established in 1934 as a new primary routing, traversing from SC 56 to US 76/SC 2 in Goldville (now Joanna). In 1941 or 1942, a second SC 66 was created, from SC 706 in Eisons Crossroads to the Newberry-Laurens county line. In 1948, the two sections of SC 66 were connected, and was also extended east into Whitmire replacing part of SC 706.[3][4][5][6]
