Interstate 585 South Carolina

Interstate 585 is one of the most unusual interstates in the system. It does not connect to another interstate. Rather, it connects downtown Spartanburg to Business Loop Interstate 85, which was once Interstate 85. The highway is also substandard for an interstate, and is signed past the eastern end of the freeway, so Interstate 585 also has some intersections and stoplights! On Day Nine of the Florida Trip, I drove both directions of Interstate 585. The sun glare was terrible, so I am not including most of the pictures I took from Interstate 585 South.

Obviously, this does not look like a
normal interstate!
