    image.jpg Anyone know what in the heck SC means with this route? I understand it all the way up to it tells me to turn left onto s goose creek rd... if you look at google maps I need to go north not south.
    Use google maps my ultimate destination is 3203 users way Moncks Corner SC. I understand everything after that part also and before. Yes I plant to call state in the morning just wondering about this part now. I’m 14’11 tall so gotta follow what they give....

    I would call the shipper too, just because google says it, does not mean it is right.

    Call the permit office that wrote it and get them to explain the route

    I have called many states when I can’t figure it out or find it

    Is there a fork in the road that you're supposed to follow?

    That is quite confusing. My guess is you can’t clear this overpass, circled in red. They want you to go past it and turn around and use the yellow ramp. Could also be an error. The permit service we use for Kentucky routed me in a circle the other day and the state didn’t catch it. We figured it out when I called for clarification.

    True. I was just using it for reference.... rarely do I follow any gps or anything without calling ahead.
     
    Oxbow and cke Thank this.

    39A28A44-60D6-4FA0-BAA7-BFD9EB425D1B.png @kylefitzy how do your get your google maps to look like more of a street view like that....?
    Mine looks like this.

    This is the intersection in question. I’ll be headed north of Red Bank rd needed to turn right onto N goose creek. Permit is telling me to turn left the follow for .7 miles the turn around and head north....
     
    cke Thanks this.

    I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve had any state make a mistake, if this is indeed a mistake.

    I would really be scrolling the road on Google maps and looking for any train trestles or road overpasses and creeks, canals, etc. Before even getting on the road with these directions.
     
    nikmirbre Thanks this.

    I’m pretty familiar with the area, I know why I’m routed the way I am. A few low areas on Rivers Ave. This is a pretty direct route to receiver...
    Minus the end...
     
    cke Thanks this.
