US Route 176 runs northwest-southeast across South Carolina near the Interstate 26 corridor, making a slight foray north into Hendersonville, North Carolina. That endpoint in Hendersonville, North Carolina, sits on the south side of that town on the business alignment of US Route 25 (the main alignment of US Route 25 is a freeway bypass around the east side of town that uses part of Interstate 26). US Route 176 heads southwest through Spartanburg, South Carolina, part of which is concurrent with the Interstate 585 spur into that city. Through central South Carolina, as US Route 178 and US Route 78 parallel Interstate 26 to the southwest, US Route 176 parallels Interstate 26 to the northeast. US Route 176 passes through Columbia, South Carolina, from north to south. Finally, at Goose Creek, South Carolina, US Route 176 ends converging with US Route 52 which takes traffic farther south into Charleston.
My photo of US Route 176 was taken in Columbia, South Carolina, at the eastern start of Interstate 126. US Routes 21, 176, 321, and 76 are all heading down Huger Street in Columbia, and this sign assembly faces south along Huger Street. Farther north, in the background of this photo, US Route 76 splits left onto the start of Interstate 126, whereas the other three US Routes bear right to turn easterly onto Elmwood Avenue. The sign assembly sits at the base of a big green overhead sign explaining everything more consummately. This photo was taken during my July 2019 detour around South Carolina.
