Who do I call to get my road repaired?
That depends on who is responsible for maintaining the road. Roads are divided into four categories: privately maintained roads, county maintained roads, state maintained roads, and municipal maintained roads.

  • Private roads belong to private individuals who are responsible for maintaining the roads. These have not been dedicated to public use, therefore, the county does not perform maintenance on these roads. Typically, these roads have yellow "Private Road" signs.

  • County roads are maintained by the Greenwood County Road Maintenance Department. Typically, these roads have green street signs with road name only.

  • State roads are maintained by the state of South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT). Generally these roads have a number designation that contains SC, US or a S-24 sign mounted above the stop sign. If you have any questions or concerns on these roads please call SCDOT at (864) 227-6701.

  • Municipal roads are within a city or town, which are not maintained by the state or county. If you have any questions or concerns about these roads, please call the appropriate municipal office.
