A project that will widen a four-mile section of South Carolina's 901 will create a regional bypass and connect the state's York County directly to Interstate 77. The project began in March 2008, and officials said they have spent a substantial amount of time clearing away boulders. "We've had to use a Cat excavator with a hydraulic hammer attachment to get a lot of rock out of the way," noted Haskel Sexton II, operations manager with U.S. Group. "We've also encountered a lot of unsuitable soil on the site that has had to be removed and replaced with borrow material."
