South Carolina Highway 702 (SC 702) is a 18.950-mile (30.497 km) primary state highway in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It serves as main access to Lake Greenwood State Park.

Route description

SC 702 is a two-lane rural highway that traverses for 18.9 miles (30.4 km) from SC 246 between Ninety Six and Coronaca, to SC 39 north of Saluda.[3]


The current routing of SC 702 was created by 1952 and has remained unchanged since. It was originally established in 1940 as a loop off SC 7 west of Greenwood. By 1942, SC 702 was extended east through Greenwood to SC 246, then southeast along the route it shares today to SC 39 north of Saluda. In 1948, SC 702 was reduced back to its original routing as a loop highway. In 1950, what remained of SC 702 became part of SC 72. The roads between the loop and its current alignment: Cambridge Avenue (S-25-29), Siloam Church Road (S-24-101) and Vines Road (S-24-179), has remained as secondary roads.
