Welcome to the official Website of the South Carolina Department of Transportation's Office of Planning in the Division of Intermodal Planning. The goal of this Website is to increase public awareness of and participation in the state's transportation planning and decision-making process.
Transportation planning supports the economic vitality of the state by increasing available options and enhancing the integration and connectivity of the transportation system across and between modes for people and freight. Transportation planning is more than merely listing highway and transit capital investments. It requires developing strategies for operating, managing, maintaining, and financing the area's transportation system to advance the area's long-term goals. An efficient transportation system can improve the economy, shape development patterns, and influence quality of life and the natural environment.
The Office of Planning is comprised of five distinct units under the Director of Planning: Statewide Planning, Asset Management, System Performance Management, Public Involvement and Road Data Services.
The units are tasked with:
