SCDOT continues to ramp up investments in pavements, and a record $642 million will be invested in FY2021-2022. On Thursday, May 20, the SCDOT Commission approved investment levels and a ranked list of projects for inclusion in the FY2021-22 Pavement Program.
These revenues will be allocated across the state system as follows:
- Interstates: $150 million
- Primary Roads: $255 million
- Farm-to-Market Secondaries: $136 million
- Neighborhood Streets: $81 million
Funding for primary roads, farm-to-market secondaries, and neighborhood streets is allocated at the county level. These allocations are based on the county’s relative share of lane miles in each system. Counties must use 10% of their allocation for preservation, and the remaining balance is used for reconstruction/rehabilitation to make major repairs or rebuild roads entirely.
Every County Will Benefit
The program consists of 977 miles of rehab/reconstruction projects across the state. Click here to view the complete list of the projects by county. You can also view an interactive map of the approved projects here.
Public comments will be accepted through June 16, 2021. Click here to submit your comments.
Pending public comments, they will be added to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP) and will begin going out for bid in the upcoming fiscal year.
Pavements are a key component of South Carolina’s 10-year plan. None of these projects would be possible without the state’s investment in 2017 to address long-overdue repairs to existing roads and bridges. Learn more about how this 2017 investment is being put to work across the state.
