US 76, SC 34: 0 - 0
I-26 (exit 76): 3.4 - 3.4
US 176: 5.9 - 9.3
Creation: SC 219 appeared in 1937 as new primary routing, running from US 21 (now US 321/SC 34) Rockton west to SC 215. This is the only SC 219.
Adjustments: In 1940, SC 219 was extended south with SC 215 to Jenkinsville, then west as new primary routing to Parr. Also in 1940, a second piece of SC 219 was created running from SC 22 (now S-36-60/146 jct) Newberry east to SC 177 (now 0.5 miles west of US 176) Pomaria.
In 1947, the second piece of SC 219 in Newberry County was downgraded to S-36-19. The original part of SC 219 west was truncated back to SC 215 leaving behind S-20-16 and SC 215.
In 1949, the Newberry County piece of SC 219 was returned to the primary system.
In 1950, the original piece of SC 219 was renumbered as SC 213.
Also in 1950, the Newberry County piece was extended 0.5 miles east over SC 177 to meet the newly routed and numbered US 176.
About 2001, SC 219 west was truncated to US 76/SC 34, leaving behind S-36-60.
Improvements: SC 219 was paved on all segments since 1939.
The westernmost 1/2 mile of SC 219 was multilane by the late 1980s.
SC 219 was multilaned from I-26 to Newberry in 2005.
SC 230 is not shown as multilane on the 2005 Official Map, but I know for sure it has been 4-lane below I-20 since 1993.
Comment: SC 219's split route in the 1940s suggests a northern crossing of the Broad River was contemplated, although when primary routing between Pomaria and the Broad River was added in 1942, it did NOT receive the 219 designation (was part of SC 773 instead).
