Will SC finish 122 miles of county's bad roads?
State officials plan to fix about 2,300 miles of roads by the end of 2021.
That’s a small part of the major road work the agency says needs to be done.
Of the 10 counties with the most miles to be finished no later than 2021, Lexington County leads the pack with 122.49 miles to repair.
The department wants to bring about 16,800 miles of state roads up to a good rating under its 10-year plan, which is based on revenues from the gas-tax-hike law that took effect 2 years ago.
These 16,800 miles are half of about 33,600 miles the agency says have to be resurfaced or rebuilt.
