SCDOT Seeks Public Comment on Three Interstate Pavement Projects

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is providing public notification of a proposal to increase construction costs for pavement improvements on sections of I-26 in Dorchester and Orangeburg counties, and I-95 extending through Jasper, Hampton and Colleton counties.

 

Under the proposal:

 

·         Construction costs for I-26 from near MM 149 in Orangeburg County to near MM 172 in Dorchester County would increase from $40.0 million to $75.0 million in FY 2020. The increase is a result of reclassifying the project as a full pavement reconstruction rather than pavement preservation, and maintaining minimum vertical clearance for 10 overpass bridge structures.

 

·         Construction costs for I-95 from near MM 23 to near MM 33 in Jasper County would increase from $22.5 million to $46.5 million in FY 2019 as a result of reclassifying the project as a full pavement reconstruction rather than pavement rehabilitation.  The reclassification is due to the extent of pavement work required.  The project also includes median tree clearing.  

 

·         Construction costs for I-95 from near MM 33 in Jasper County, through Hampton County, to near MM 62 in Colleton County would increase from $52.3 million to $82.0 million in FY 2020. The increase is a result of reclassifying the project as a full pavement reconstruction rather than pavement rehabilitation. The reclassification is due to the extent of pavement work required.  The project also includes 1 bridge rehabilitation and median tree clearing.

 

 A copy of this press release and location maps for each project are available for public review and comment until October 11, 2016 on the worldwide web at:
