Abstract
A proposed SCDOT project in the area of the cut in the town of St. Matthews consists of the widening of the US 601 from US 176 to SC 6 in the town of St. Matthews. During the survey phase of this project, it was determined by SCDOT, in consultation with the SHPO, that the railroad cut was a National Register of Historic Places eligible archaeological site (38Cl67) because of its potential to yield further information about the role of enslaved African-Americans in railroad construction.
