Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan - Stakeholder Webinars

January 7th, 8th and 9th.

SCDOT hosted a second of a series of Stakeholder Webinars as part of the SCDOT Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan development. The webinars were designed to provide updates on the progress of the Multimodal Transportation Plan, as well as Public Transportation, Rail, Interstate, Strategic Corridor, and Freight plans and most importantly receive input and buy-in from our stakeholders.

These webinars were interactive sessions that provided stakeholder's opportunities to provide comments on the 2040 Baseline Revenue Projections, Multimodal Needs, and Alternative Investment Scenarios, as well as tasks associated with the Public Transportation, Rail, Interstate, Strategic Corridor, and Freight plans.

The webinars were held on three dates in January, as shown below. The information in each of the three sessions will focus on the individual modal plans and were suggested for stakeholders with preference to enable modal-specific question and answer periods following the presentation. All webinars were open to the public, and participants were not limited to one session.

April 2013 Webinars

SCDOT hosted the first of a series of Stakeholder Webinars as part of the SCDOT Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan development in April 2013. The webinars were designed to provide updates on the progress of the Multimodal Transportation Plan, as well as Public Transportation, Rail, Interstate, Strategic Corridor, and Freight plans and most importantly receive input and buy-in from our stakeholders.

The first webinars were interactive sessions that provided stakeholder's opportunities to provide comments on the vision, goals, objectives, and performance measures, updated strategic corridor system, interstate congestion, as well as tasks associated with the Public Transportation, Rail, Interstate, Strategic Corridor, and Freight plans.

The webinars were held in three sessions and the information in each of the three sessions focused on the individual modal plans. Stakeholders were encouraged to attend webinars that most interested them to enable modal-specific question and answer periods following each of the presentations. All webinars were open to the public, and participants were not limited to one session.

Quotes from our stakeholders

"This will be a new and integrated plan for transportation in South Carolina with an emphasis on commerce and safety. The plan will help us manage the transportation system we have and help us decide how to spend scarce resources to improve the system."

Secretary Bobby Hitt - South Carolina Department of Commerce

"Ship sizes are increasing, and increasing exports are helping to create a balance with imports at the port. While these trends are good for South Carolina, they put pressure on the transportation infrastructure, and this study will help us address that pressure."

Jack Ellenberg - Vice President, South Carolina State Ports Authority

"This is the first time I have seen this level of cooperation at the state agency level. FHWA looks forward to working with you in this partnership to document the performance of the transportation system, to focus on freight efficiency, and to take advantage of the funding flexibility contained in recent federal programs."

Bob Lee - South Carolina Division Administrator, Federal Highway Administration
