Columbia, South Carolina (September 27, 2022) - With forecasts calling for South Carolina to be impacted by Hurricane Ian later this week, workers of the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) are prepared to work around the clock and use all available resources to maintain the safety of South Carolina's roads and bridges.
SCDOT is coordinating preparations with our state, federal and local partners in emergency response and public safety. SCDOT crews in all counties are preparing equipment that would be used for removing trees and other debris from the roads. In addition, SCDOT is monitoring traffic flow from Florida and Georgia evacuees to determine any impacts on our transportation network.
SCDOT workers in high impact areas will be available to shift to 24-hour operations for the duration of the storm and aftermath.
