County roads on DOT’s paving list
More than a dozen Darlington County roads and streets are included in the state Department of Transportation’s “pavement improvement program” for the 2020-21 fiscal year.
DOT says the improvements are part of an additional $562 million in road paving and resurfacing projects besides the $1.3 billion in “road, bridge and safety project work” already underway in the state.
DOT says the following Darlington County roads and streets are set for repaving. The list does not give cross streets, so it’s not clear exactly where this work is to be done.

FARM-TO-MARKET SECONDARIES: South Center Road, 1.94 miles; Seven Pines Road, 3.67 miles; Sonoco Road, 0.32 miles.
