In 2017, the South Carolina Legislature passed a much-needed, comprehensive funding bill to improve the safety and condition of our state’s roads and bridges. While 2017 was a successful year for supporters of fixing our roads, the South Carolina Alliance to Fix Our Roads continues to advocate for safe and efficient infrastructure.
Act 40 of 2017 set the foundation to tackle the areas of greatest need: pavement condition, safety, and bridges. Progress is already underway to make roads smoother and safer for all South Carolinians. Investments have doubled for pavements, and resurfacing projects are happening in all 46 counties. Safety specific improvements have been made to 393 miles of rural roads, with the goal of improvement to 1,000 miles over the 10-year plan. Additionally, 114 bridge projects have been completed, with 465 to be addressed over a 10-year period.

SCFOR thanks the lawmakers who understand the importance of our roads and bridges. Their commitment to improving the quality of our state’s transportation network is much appreciated.
