Thanks to the passage of road funding legislation in recent years, South Carolina has seen a significant boost in the amount of work that is out on the streets. The construction program continues to grow and has quadrupled over the past 10 years.
More than $797 million in contracts have been awarded in the current fiscal year.
Currently, there is $3.3 billion worth of work going on across the state. Of that work, $1.6 billion has been paid out for completed projects (up from $1.5B last month). This data is proof that contracts continue to roll out, industry partners are ramping up, and progress is being made. A breakdown of the construction program by category can be found here.
