State Transportation Commission Earmarks Interstate Roads For Funding

Improvements on some 90 miles of interstate highways in South Carolina could move closer to fruition if the Transportation Infrastructure Bank accepts the recommendation of the S.C. Department of Transportation Commission.
The commission designated seven major interstate improvement projects to be funded with bond proceeds approved by the General Assembly in the 2013 session. The commission approved a resolution July 18th urging the Transportation Infrastructure Bank board to “fully utilize and adhere to the South Carolina Department of Transportation Commission’s recommendations” for projects to be financed.

I-85/I-385 interchange improvement will begin in 2014

Just when you thought you have seen the end of construction delays on area freeways, South Carolina Department of Transportation announced this week that work will begin in 2014 to reconstruct the interchange of I-85 and I-385.

According to GSA Business, the project will cost $284 million.  Home Builders should begin planning now for the impact the construction will have on their businesses in terms of time loss and availability of materials.
