COLUMBIA, S.C. — A favorite topic among folks in South Carolina is the state of the roads, so let's talk about it!
The recent heavy rain has wreaked havoc on the state's roadways, causing additional potholes to occur, according to the South Carolina Department of Transportation.
"That's caused a lot of problems with the surface of our roadways," SCDOT Resident Maintenance Engineer A. Tony Magwood said. "My office may see anywhere between 100 to 150 call-ins for potholes on roadways."
To find out where the worst potholes are, SCDOT is reaching out to the public as they begin a "Pothole Blitz." The agency says they will focus their maintenance crews on repairing these road hazards for the next several weeks.
"We're looking to focus a lot of our resources into trying to improve some of the ride conditions statewide," Magwood said. "If a driver does see something that needs to be reported, you can certainly report that to your local DOT office and we'll take care of that."
