60.1 — that’s how many miles of road will be paved in Lexington and Richland Counties this year thanks to SCDOT’s 2024 Pavement Improvement Program.

The accelerated pavement program, now in its seventh year, is part of a 10-year, $2.8 billion program to work on 8,000 miles of roadway across the state. In 2023, the program was boosted by a $775 million funding increase and an additional 877 miles of road.

How were roads chosen?

The projects were chosen through a ranking process based on measurable criteria. This method ensures alignment with the plan and meets the Transportation Asset Management Plan’s targets, and equitable funding distribution for pavement improvements across all SC counties.
