A section of a planned $2 billion expressway in South Carolina has gained key approval.
State and federal officials signed the final environmental impact statement for the northern leg of the proposed Interstate-73 on Wednesday. The southern leg of the highway has already gained final approval.

State Transportation Department spokesman Pete Poore says Wednesday’s approval locks in the planned route for the northern section of I-73. Poore says officials expect to clear a final step in October.

The entire expressway will run about 90 miles in South Carolina and eventually link Myrtle Beach with Michigan.
