Has SCDOT forgotten U.S. 521 North?

First, let me say coming into Camden on U.S. 1, S.C. 34 and U.S. 521 from Sumter are really well kept. Leaving the Camden city limits on U.S. 521/601 North (however), one can get air under their seat crossing Sanders Creek. I also see after a heavy rain, the standing water across from Peck Woods Road is going to hurt somone and cause a major accident. And I haven't mentioned the bone jarring bumps every 15 yards all the way to Westville.
