Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Sumter planners, with the help of SCDOT, have identified the most dangerous intersections in our community based on the total number of crashes over a three year period.  Listed below, these intersections have experienced hundreds of accidents.  This project is designed to improve traffic safety at these intersections. 


  • US 76-378 and SC 441
  • Broad St and Gion St
  • Guignard and Lafayette
  • Carter Rd and Broad St. Extension
  • Main St and Calhoun St
  • W. Liberty and Washington St
  • Wesmark and Broad

The Penny for Progress will:

  • Re-engineer these dangerous intersections and construct safer intersections to increase safety for both pedestrians and mortorists
  • Upgrade traffic controls
  • Improve signal phasing
  • Upgrade approach signage
  • Provide dedicated new right and left run lanes
