Creation: SC 288 appeared in 1940 as new primary routing, running from SC 28 (now S-37-3) West Union north to today's S-37-234 Salem. A second discontinuous piece ran from US 178 below Rocky Bottom southwest to the Oconee County line at Eastatoe. This is the only SC 288.
Adjustments: In 1942, the gap in SC 288 was closed as new primary routing via Jocassee. Also, SC 288 south was extended with SC 28 south, then south as new primary routing to end at US 76 (now S-37-13) Richland. Also, SC 288 north was extended south with US 178, then east as new primary routing through Pumpkintown to end at US 276 Marietta.
In 1947, SC 288 west was truncated to SC 271 (now SC 130) Salem. US 76 to SC 28 became S-37-35; SC 28 to Salem became S-37-19 and S-37-24 (this is now SC 11/S-37-24/SC 130).
In 1949, SC 288 was re-extended from Salem south to West Union.
In 1956, SC 288 west was truncated to SC 8-11 Pumpkintown. Pumpkintown west around to West union all became SC 11. Today this is SC 11 out of West Union; S-37-24; SC 130 to Salem; S-37-44, S-37-190, S-37-25 to Lake Jocassee; about 3 miles including the town of Jocassee is under Lake Jocassee; S-37-100; US 178.
In 1971, SC 288 was extended west over SC 11 to its current end at US 178. For some reason the 1970 Official labels SC 11 there as TEMP 288.
Improvements: SC 288 was paved in from US 178 west to Eastatoe in 1940.
In 1942, SC 288 was paved on its eastern extension to Marietta except between SC 8 and the Greenville line.
In 1949, SC 288 was paved on its renewal from West union to Salem and also everywhere east of US 178.
In 1951, SC 288 was paved from Salem to Jocassee.
Jocassee to Eastatoe was not paved while it was part of SC 288.
There are no multilane segments on SC 288.
Comment: SC 288 was once the only way to get E-W across the top of Pickens and Oconee Counties.
NC 288 and GA 288 were also victims of lake submersion. Conspiracy?
