SCDOT Awards the first projects enabled by the Roads Bill

The South Carolina Department of Transportation has announced the awarding of contracts for a number of road resurfacing and rehabilitation projects in 27 counties that are enabled by the Roads Bill as well as increased funding provided by the General Assembly to the local County Transportation Committees (CTCs).  This list of projects covers nearly 200 miles of paving projects in 27 counties in South Carolina. The projects are located all around the state and are valued at nearly $26.5 million, including nearly $14 million in SCDOT prioritized projects and approximately $13 million in CTC projects. The projects are part of SCDOTs increased resurfacing program and the local County Transportation Committee (CTC) programs that SCDOT manages in Aiken, Berkeley, Georgetown, and Oconee Counties.  Additional road and bridge projects in these and other counties will be advancing to contract as we move forward in the year.

 

·         Upstate Counties: Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, McCormick, Oconee, Pickens and Spartanburg Counties. Just over 80 miles on 62 highways in these counties will be resurfaced.

 

·         Midland Counties: Aiken, Chester, Kershaw, Newberry, Saluda and York Counties. Just over 41 miles will be resurfaced on 39 roads.

 

·         Pee Dee Counties: Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon and Florence, Georgetown, Horry, Marion, Marlboro and Williamsburg Counties will see approximately 43 miles on 27 roads resurfaced.

 

·         Low Country Counties; Berkeley and Charleston Counties are scheduled to have approximately 24 miles on 21 roads resurfaced.

Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall said these contracts awarded have been enabled by increased road funding that the General Assembly provided directly to the CTCs and to DOT.  “Without the passage of the Roads Bill and infusion of funding to the local CTCs, DOT would not have been able to proceed with advancing these projects to construction.”

Secretary Hall further noted that “SCDOT engineers were prepared to advance these projects to contract prior to the passage of the Roads Bill. Now that the General Assembly has taken decisive action on guaranteeing road funding to support our plan to rebuild our roads, we are committed to putting those dollars to work quickly and will continue to advance projects to contract in accordance with our plan. ”

SCDOT Deputy Secretary for Finance Brian Keys noted that the new revenues from the Roads Bill are expected to begin to accumulate over the next 45-60 days in the DOTs new Infrastructure Maintenance Trust Fund account and will align with the projected cash flow needs of these projects.

SCDOT Chairman Woody Willard said that the SCDOT Commission has approved a plan to commit $99 Million dollars of the estimated $149 Million of the first years’ increased revenue stream to resurfacing and the remaining $50 Million to the Rural Road Safety program. “The awarding of these contracts is the first step in launching our program to begin to turn around the poor condition of our road network,” said Willard.
