The Infrastructure Decade in South Carolina

Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, South Carolina will benefit from $4.8 billion in infrastructure investments. Sample projects include:

  • $357 million for Carolina Crossroads aka “Malfunction Junction”
  • $26 million for Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority Bus Project
  • $23 million for Orangeburg Railroad Corner
  • $61.7 million for clean school buses

  • $4.9 million for wastewater and collection system upgrades in the Town of Allendale
  • $24 million for water and wastewater system improvements for the Beaufort Jasper Sewer Authority
  • $10 million for the Central Berkeley Wastewater Treatment Plant Project in Berkeley County

Accessible and Affordable Internet for All

  • Due in large part to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and notably the American Rescue Plan, South Carolina has received $1.1 billion  to ensure every home and business is connected to high-speed internet by 2026.

  • Thanks to the Affordable Connectivity Program, nearly 420,000 South Carolinians save $30-$75 per month on their internet bill.
