The FY23-24 budget, as passed by the SC House, includes one-time and recurring allocations to bolster road and bridge improvements.
Infrastructure investments remain a priority among legislators. The SCDOT has been allocated non-recurring dollars for bridges ($200 million) and a combination of recurring and non-recurring funds for litter ($8 million). The budget also includes a non-recurring allocation ($250 million) to accelerate County Transportation Committee (CTC) projects.
SCFOR applauds the House for allocating dollars to address our bridge network and boosting funds for county road programs. As Senators begin their work on the FY23-24 budget, we encourage them to support these allocations.
Bridges are key connectors for communities and commerce. The $200 million allocation for bridges will help address repairs and replacements of aging structures across the state.
