— Driving to York may be a little smoother by summer’s end.

A 4.26-mile stretch of S.C. 49 from Alexander Highway in York to just east of Campbell Road is being repaved as part of the 2013 Federal Aid Pavement Improvement and Preservation Program.

A 1.4-mile section of Springfield Parkway in Fort Mill is the only other York County project.

Both are expected to be completed July 31.

The federal program allotted more than $93 million for reconstruction and rehabilitation of almost 260 miles of roads in 46 counties. More than $16 million goes to projects in the 5th Congressional District.

Several other road projects are ongoing. Lake Wylie will see several through the 2011 Pennies for Progress vote, including widening of Pole Branch Road.

The state Department of Transportation held a public meeting in January on a redesign of the I-77/Gold Hill Road interchange.

In December, they held a meeting for S.C. 160 improvements at Gold Hill and Zoar roads.
