The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) announced they will receive an additional $190 million of federal funding for road projects in the state. SCDOT stated they are prepared to accept the additional funding because of qualified projects that are already planned and underway with state funds, which is a requirement to receive the additional funding.
“Thanks to the vision and leadership of Governor McMaster and the South Carolina General Assembly and their continued investment in our state infrastructure, our agency was well positioned to draw down and match even more road and bridge money for South Carolina. We will deploy these funds to prioritized interstate, bridge, and safety projects that are already underway, or about to be underway, within the 10-Year Plan,” said South Carolina Secretary of Transportation Christy A. Hall.
