The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) currently is accepting public comments to amend the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) to include over $2 million in construction funding to build traffic-management centers in Richland and York counties.
The Richland County center has been allotted $100,000 for preliminary engineering and $900,000 in construction funds for fiscal year 2017. The center requires a major upgrade and repairs to meet current and future needs.
The York County center has been allotted $1,007,000 for construction during fiscal year 2015. The funding will be used for construction of a new traffic management center at the I-77 welcome center, near the North Carolina state line.
The centers serve as operation facilities for SCDOT’s State Highway Emergency Program and incident responders.
The public may view and comment on the press release and project location maps until April 8.
