SCDOT Launches New Web Link to Track 10-Year Rebuilding Plan Spending and Project List
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has taken more steps to allow the public to view a detailed revenue statement and project list that is supported by the Infrastructure Maintenance Trust Fund (IMTF). The information made public today is a further effort to assist South Carolinians in keeping track of the additional gas tax revenues which are deposited in the IMTF. The IMTF funds the 10-Year Plan to Rebuild SC’s Roads. Earlier this month, SCDOT added the IMTF Report on the agency’s web site to provide a monthly statement of how much revenue is available for the improvement projects. The revenue statement and the project list have been added to the IMTF Report as of March 1st.
Since the Roads Bill was passed on July 1 of 2017, Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall stated that SCDOT is quite clear on the expectations the public has for this new revenue to be spent wisely. “The additional information we are providing related to the project list and the funds committed is a further move forward in SCDOT’s on-going efforts to be as accountable and transparent as possible,” said Hall.
Finally, Hall said SCDOT will continue to upgrade and provide regular updates on the revenues and expenditures related to all SCDOT Highway programs.
