“Appalachian Trail Approach.”
Waiting impatiently for the surprise storm to end, the 25-year-old Buford native prepared himself for the grueling journey ahead – a solo 2,200-mile hike along the world’s longest marked trail.

Water main project under way on U.S. 521

By Reece Murphy

Installing a huge water main along U.S. 521 in Indian Land is expected to take about four months, but officials say the impact on traffic should be minimal.
The $1.2 million project will upgrade northern Indian Land’s water main from 12-inch-diameter pipe to 20-inch pipe, said Stephen White,  Lancaster County Water and Sewer District manager.
The project runs nearly 2 miles along the highway’s west side from Dobys Bridge Road to the area of Lodge Road at Masonic Lodge 414 and Windsor Trace.
