All about Clemson Road | The Columbia Northeast
All about Clemson Road
Clemson Road is a main thoroughfare through the Northeast Columbia region, which is commonly referred to as “The Northeast”. The Northeast is primarily enclosed within Hwy 321 or I-77 (running North and South) on the West, and I-20 (running East and West) on the Southern side. Our Columbia MLS system distinguishes this area as Area 4. Clemson Road is the main thoroughfare between these two highways and with the fairly recent Clemson Road extension you can travel directly from I-20 to I-77 without making any turns. From I-77 you will notice that Clemson Road is referred to as Killian Road. This is because Killian Road was rerouted into Clemson Road.
Clemson Road got its name from the Clemson University Sandhills Experimental Agricultural land tract that is located across from The Village at SandHills shopping mall in Columbia. Now it is a community meeting place for events such as the weekly farmers market, walking trails and temporary vendors. For the sake of visual identification…it’s a park.
All along Clemson Road you will find multiple residential subdivisions. Some are established and some are new. Some of the first subdivisions were Rainsborough, North Springs, Rice Creek and The Summit. However, The Summit is such a large landmass that it has been under constant development for the past 20 years and may still be referred to as a new subdivision.
More recent subdivisions include Copperfield, Winchester, Carriage Oaks, Winslow, Brookfield and a handful of others. All of these neighborhoods are accessed from Clemson Road and have excellent exit points onto major interstate highways.
