NC, SC state line work may not wrap until spring

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Just exactly where the line is that separates the Carolinas may be in dispute for more months to come.

A special commission trying to hash out problems created when South Carolina and North Carolina resurveyed their state line may not complete its work until spring.

That's when officials plan to finish retracing the last 31 miles of the 334-mile border. Officials had hoped to finish work this year so the Joint Boundary Commission could approve the final border in December.

But funding issues delayed the start on the final segment of the border until October, pushing the estimated completion date to spring.

The panel is overseeing the first full survey of the state line between the Carolinas in more than 200 years.
