The Highways of South Carolina SC 380 to 389 
< 370 to 379 | Home | 390 to 399 >
SC 380  not currently assigned
Previous SC 380's: SC 380: Appeared in 1941 or 1942 as new routing. Ran from SC 38 (current SC 38-917 split) southeast near Sellers and ending at SC 571 (current SC 38/S-33-83 split), a distance of 5 miles.
In 1948, SC 380 was extended east another mile to US 501, replacing a small piece of SC 571.
The 1950 General Drafting Map shows SC 380 in this position; The 1952 Gousha shows SC 380 as a secondary route (unsure if this is accurate); However, the SC Official Map of 1953 shows SC 380 renumbered as SC 38, which it remains today.

 
 
SC 381
From: SC 38 Blenheim (Marlboro County)
To: North Carolina State Line just below Gibson, NC (Marlboro County). NC 381 continues to US 74 Business Hamlet
Total Length: 22.8 miles (SC + NC 381 = 35 miles)  
ROUTE LOG
SC 38: 0 - 0
SC 9: 8.5 - 8.5
SC 83: 1.4 - 9.9
US 15, US 401: 5.7 - 15.6
NC STATE LINE: 7.2 - 22.8
Creation: Created about 1930 as new primary routing. Ran from SC 38 Blenheim to SC 9 Clio only.
Adjustments: In 1931 or 1932, SC 381 was extended in both directions: north to SC 30 (current US 15-401) McColl, and west from SC 38 around through the community of Marlboro, ending at SC 30 (current US 15-401) across from where SC 912 ends today. This made SC 381 about 35 miles long.
In 1934, SC 381 west of SC 38 was downgraded to secondary status, today's S-34-57. This was a rare case of a state route losing its status before the 1948 denumbering, although a little of this became the short lived SC 785. Also, SC 381 was extended north to the state line.
In 1940, SC 381 was re-extended west of SC 38 on a different road than the 1932-34 routing, ending at SC 382 (current S-34-18) near the village of Scott.
In 1948, SC 381 west was truncated back to today's routing, leaving behind S-34-50.
Improvements: SC 381 was fully paved by 1938; no multilane sections
Comment: SC 381 can be used as a sortcut from US 74 to I-95 while avoiding Bennettsville.

 
 
SC 382  not currently assigned
Previous SC 382's: SC 382: Appeared in 1940 as new routing. Ran from SC 38 east of Drake through western Marlboro County and ended at SC 38 Bennettsville, a distance of 11 miles.

SC 383  not currently assigned
Previous SC 383's: SC 383: Appeared in 1936 or 1937 as new routing. Ran from SC 9 (current SC 9-79 split) east to SC 79 (current SC 79-385 split), a distance of 7 miles.

In 1940, SC 384 was extended east 1 mile to the NC State Line, where the road continued as a secondary road to NC 79.
The 6 miles SC 384 were downgraded to S-34-17 in 1948.
U.S. Bike Route 1 ends at the state line crossing of this road (runs from here to Mt. Vernon, VA)

SC 385
From: US 15US 401 west of Bennettsville(Marlboro County)
To: SC 79 near NC State Line (Marlboro County)
Total Length: 10.9 miles  
ROUTE LOG
US 15, US 401: 0 - 0
SC 9, SC 38: 1.1 - 1.1
SC 9 Bus WB, SC 38 Bus NB: 0.7 - 1.8
SC 9 Bus EB, SC 38 Bus SB: 0.1 - 1.9

Creation: Appeared between 1968-70 as a renumbering of SC 79, running from US 15-401 Business, Main St. Bennettsville north to SC 79. This is the 2nd SC 385.
Adjustments: Around 1990 (maps do not show when this took place), SC 385 was extended through Bennettsville, replacing the US 15-401 Business route.
Improvements: Fully paved when designated; The county map atlas suggests SC 385 is multilane from Main St north to S-34-47 nea Breeden.
Comment: SC 385 runs along the east edge of Lake Wallace.
Previous SC 385's: SC 385 #1: Appeared in 1941 or 1942 as new primary routing. Ran from SC 341 east over the Lynches River to US 15-SC 34 Una.
In 1948, the 8 miles of SC 385 were downgraded to S-31-26. Today, the Lynches River crossing is shown as non-existent, although both sides of the river are still S-31-26.

 
 
SC 386  not currently assigned

It is unclear if SC 386 was extended the 0.4 miles to SC 391.
In 1948, SC 386 was downgraded to S-32-46. The Saluda County piece is S-41-46, a rare instance where a county route number stays the same across a county line.
