In 2012 Gov. Nikki Haley was successful in cutting almost $49 million from SCDOT Highway Maintenance Funds

In 2012 Gov. Nikki Haley was successful in cutting almost $49 million from SCDOT Highway Maintenance Funds
Misplaced priorities in 2012 Governor Nikki Haley proposed an almost $49 million cut from the Department of Transportation Highway Maintenance fund. Four years later the DOT Highway Maintenance fund is no where its 2011 funding level. In 2015 the TRIP report found South Carolina that 46 percent of South Carolina’s major roads and highways are in poor condition, which shows a significant increase from the 32 percent reported in 2008.

Budget information for South Carolina Department of Transportation:
In 2011-2012 Gov Haley proposed funding of $1,137,411,022 should be increase to $ 1,401,764,666 for 2012-2013
Within in that proposal Governor proposed decreasing the Highway Maintenance fund from $ 248,150,000 to – $ 199,169,981 for 2012-2013
Fast foward to 2016 we see that the Highway Maintenance just in five years has decreased by many millions to 216,820,417.

According to TRIP:

Forty-six percent of South Carolina’s major roads and highways
(state-maintained Interstate, primary and secondary routes) were
rated in poor condition in 2014, a significant increase since 2008
when 32 percent of the state’s major roads and highways were in
poor condition.

• Eighty-four percent of the $156 billion worth of commodities delivered annually from sites in
South Carolina is transported by trucks on the state’s highways. An additional seven percent is
delivered by parcel, U.S. Postal Service or courier, which use multiple modes, including
highways

• Vehicle travel on South Carolina’s highways increased by 43 percent from 1990 to 2013. South
Carolina’s population grew by 35 percent between 1990 and 2013.

• Vehicle travel on America’s highways increased by 39 percent from 1990 to 2013, while new
road mileage increased by only four percent. The nation’s population grew by 26 percent from
1990 to 2013.

Roadway Improvements Can Save Lives and Reduce Traffic Crashes
• Roadway conditions are a significant factor in approximately one-third of traffic fatalities. There
were 824 traffic fatalities in 2014 in South Carolina. A total of 4,092 people died on South
Carolina’s highways from 2010 through 2014.

I.4. Key Strategic Challenges
The department’s biggest challenge is funding for the preservation of South Carolina’s aging
highway system. SCDOT’s state funding comes primarily from the 16 cents per gallon motor
fuel user fee, which was last adjusted over twenty-five years ago in 1987. According to the
American Petroleum Institute, South Carolina’s “user fee” is now the fourth lowest in the nation.

I.5. How the Accountability Report is used to improve organizational performance
This report, coupled with the agency’s Strategic Management Plan, will evaluate progress
towards improvements and target performance measures. This report is made available to all
employees and its preparation is a shared project with all divisions and sub-divisions in the
Department

Section II – ORGANIZATIONAL PROFILE
II.1. Your organization’s main products and services and the primary methods by which
these are delivered

• Maintenance – manages the maintenance of the 4th largest highway system in the nation,
as well as 8,383 bridges through rehabilitation, reconstruction, and preservation methods

• Where appropriate, highway improvements such as removing or shielding obstacles, adding or
improving medians, widening lanes and shoulders, upgrading roads from two lanes to four lanes,
and improving road markings and traffic signals can reduce traffic fatalities and accidents and
improve traffic flow to help relieve congestion.
• According to a study conducted by the Federal Highway Administration, $100 million spent on
highway safety improvements will save 145 lives over a 10-year period.
