SCDOT Seeks Public Comment for Construction Funding To Advance Interstate Rehab Projects
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is seeking public comment for a proposed amendment to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) to include and add additional construction funding to advance the rehabilitation and resurfacing of sections of Interstates 20, 26 and 85 in Richland County; Newberry and Lexington/Richland counties, and Spartanburg County, respectively. The selected sections to be resurfaced and their estimated costs include:
 
·         Interstate I-20 Westbound lanes would be resurfaced from Mile Marker (MM) 74.6 near Two Notch Road to MM 75.9 near Alpine Road and adjoins with the I-20 Widening/Rehab project currently underway in this area of Richland County. (New Project)
                              (Preliminary Engineering (PE) cost estimated at $15,000 in FY 2013)
                        (Resurfacing cost estimated at $1.623 Million in FY 2013)
 
·         Interstate 26 East and Westbound lanes would be resurfaced from MM 60 near Joanna to near
MM 75 in Newberry County.  This project, which is already in the STIP for design, may also include the raising or the replacement of bridges along Jalapa Road, Old Whitmire Highway, SC 121 and Mt. Bethany Garmany Road to provide adequate clearance over the Interstate.
                                     (Resurfacing and Bridge costs estimated at $44.075 Million in FY 2014)
 
·         Interstate 26 Eastbound lanes from MM 89 near Chapin to MM 101 near Irmo/Ballentine are slated for rehabilitation. This project is in the STIP for design and will also include the raising or replacing of bridges along Peak Street and Columbia Avenue in Lexington County, and Old Hilton Road, Mt. Vernon Church Road, Shady Grove Road and Koon Road in Richland County to provide adequate clearance over I-26.  
     (Resurfacing and Bridge costs estimated at $17.850 Million in FY 2015)
 
·         Interstate 26 Westbound lanes from MM 89 to MM 96.5 would be resurfaced. This project adjoins the immediate above project.  Combining these two projects would provide a cost savings and minimize disruption to the motoring public. (New Project)
            (Resurfacing cost estimated at $6.615 Million in FY 2015)
            (Bridge Raising/Replacement costs estimated at $1.680 Million in FY 2015)
 
·         Interstate 85 North and Southbound lanes would be resurfaced from MM 58 near Duncan to MM 68 near Wellford.
            (PE cost estimated at $200,000 in FY 2013)
            (PE and Right-Of-Way costs estimated at $680,000 in FY 2014)
            (Resurfacing cost estimated at $33.600 Million in FY 2015)
 
·         I-85 Northbound lanes would be resurfaced from MM 77 to MM 84 in Spartanburg. This project is already in the STIP for design.
            (PE cost estimated at $650,000 in FY 2013)
            (Right-Of-Way cost estimated at $580,000 in FY 2014)
            (Resurfacing cost estimated at $28.350 Million in FY 2015)
