New I-26 eastbound ramp to Sunset Blvd in West Columbia to open Monday, existing ramp to be closed 

Motorists exiting from I-26 Eastbound onto U.S. 378 will use a newly constructed exit ramp starting next week. Weather permitting, the new, two-lane exit ramp will open on Monday, June 19 at 5 a.m.

Message boards will be installed ahead of the opening, notifying motorists of the new ramp configuration. Motorists should watch for new exit signs and drive with caution.

I-26 Ramp

The new ramp will provide an additional lane for traffic, and is approximately 2,500 feet longer than the existing ramp, allowing a longer distance for exiting vehicles to reduce their speed.

The new ramp is part of the Carolina Crossroads Phase 1 project in Richland and Lexington Counties. The project includes improvements to the exit ramp to US 378 from I-26 eastbound and associated interstate widening in Lexington County and a full access interchange at Colonial Life Boulevard at I-126 in Richland County.
