Thanks to adjustments in funding methodology, beginning with the 2020 Pavement Program counties will have more flexibility when it comes to addressing roads in need of MORE than just preservation.
Over 600 miles of REHABILITATION AND RECONSTRUCTION PROJECTS have been approved for inclusion in the 2020 Pavement program.
Phase 1 rehab/reconstruction projects were approved in June and were open for an extended public comment period through July. Phase 2 was approved last week at the September Commission meeting and is currently out for public comment.
Public Comments on Phase 2 will be accepted until October 21, 2019. Details on submitting public comments can be found here.
Pavements are a key component of South Carolina’s 10-year plan. To date, SCDOT has already doubled the paving program’s investment levels and is on track to nearly quadruple the entire program by 2023. None of which would be possible without the road funding bill of 2017.
