SCDOT Seeks Public Comment on Special Bridge Replacement Program

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is seeking comment from the public on a proposed 2013 Act 98 Special Bridge Replacement Program prior to inclusion in the South Carolina Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). Projects listed in the program have been allotted $52,944,000 and involves the replacement of 90 bridges in 33 counties across the state.

Under the program, only load-restricted and closed bridges will be replaced. SCDOT distributed funding for the projects to the state's seven (7) Engineering Districts based on the percentage of these types of bridges in each district. The program focuses on bridges that can be replaced on existing alignment using pre-cast voided box bridges with minimal approach work.

    A copy of this press release and a link to the 2013 Act 98 Special Bridge Replacement Program document, which lists the selected bridges by county in the respective Engineering District with location maps, are available for public review and comment on the web at:
