SCDOT Recommends Funding for 3 Upstate Interstate Improvement Projects

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, S.C. -

South Carolina transportation leaders are moving forward with their plans to fund several major interstate improvement projects, including three in the Upstate.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) Commission will fund the projects with bond proceeds approved by the General Assembly in the 2013 session.

Earlier this month, the group approved a resolution, urging the SC Transportation Infrastructure Bank Board to dole out funds based on the SCDOT's priority list. You can see the full resolution approved by clicking here.

The list uses a combination of the $500 million bonding capacity and federal and state funds to recommend projects for funding. Those projects include:

  • I-85/I-385 interchange in Greenville County
  • I-85 widening in Greenville/Spartanburg counties (24.7 miles)
  • I-85 widening in Spartanburg/Cherokee counties (28.36 miles)

The Commission recommended using up to $240 million of the $500 available SIB bond proceeds toward the I-385/I-85 interchange in Greenville County. Federal funds not used toward that project will be directed toward additional prioritized interstate widening projects.
