Our Strategic Plan: A guide to help us Rebuild our Roads

Our task over the next 10 years and beyond is to repair and rebuild our transportation network to ensure that our citizens and businesses can travel on a safe and reliable system. This is a core function of government and SCDOT is entrusted with the responsibility to effectively and efficiently utilize tax payer funds to turn the status of the state-owned transportation network around. We will accomplish this mission by establishing an overarching Strategic Plan to guide our initiatives, a Transportation Asset Management Plan to articulate our targets and embrace performance management principles that will enable us to determine how we are doing in achieving our goals. We will also utilize risk management strategies to help us identify and mitigate potential obstacles to achieving success.



OUR MISSION: SCDOT connects communities and drives our economy through the systematic planning, construction, maintenance and operation of the state highway system and the statewide intermodal transportation and freight system.

OUR VISION: It is SCDOT’s vision to rebuild our transportation system over the next decade in order to provide adequate, safe and efficient transportation services for the movement of people and goods in the Palmetto state.

OUR VALUES: The SCDOT team recognizes the importance of all SCDOT divisions, units, and offices functioning as one team – One SCDOT. Our team not only serves our citizens and businesses to accomplish the mission and achieve the vision, it also exemplifies the qualities and holds the values that make us one of the top DOT’s in the nation.
