The intersection between SC-277 and I-20 is almost a Malfunction-Junction writ small. Unlike Malf-Jay, it's only a partial cloverleaf, but while the transition from northbound 277 to eastbound I-20 isn't bad, the transition from westbound I-20 to northbound 277 has that stretch just like Malf-Jay where cars are trying to merge left onto 277 at the same time others are trying to merge right onto the I-20 ramp.

Why anyone thought that putting up a row of metal lane pickets at the point where the merge starts would help anything I don't know, and in fact it didn't. The pickets did nothing but annoy people and turn an already quite short merging area into an even shorter one. Fortunately good sense prevailed after about a month, and the pickets are now gone as you can see here. It is hard, in fact, to even see where they were planted at this point.

This little building is just to the left of the Dessi Short Stop III building, and google doesn't turn up a whole lot about it.

All I know is that On 27 November 2002 the building, which was to operate as a restaurant and nightclub, was denied beer & wine and mini-bottle permits due to an objection (considered by the court) from the Richland County Sherriff's office, and that on 26 December 2011, the place (which was referred to only as "a former nightclub") caught fire despite the electricty being turned off.

John Deere Landscapes, 1300 Fontaine Road: 2010 (moved?)   no comments

Posted at 12:54 am in business

I noticed this one driving down Fontaine Road to SC-277 recently. The landscaping operation across Warner Drive from the old Hertz Equipment Rental has either closed or moved. I think it's probably moved as in this year's phonebook, the phone number goes from "John Deere Landscapes, 1300 Fontaine Road" to simply "John Deere Landscapes, Columbia" with a new number given for a Sunset Boulevard location.

Apparently the dog hasn't moved yet..
