A two year battle to fix South Carolina's roads may be close to an end. South Carolina's legislature approved a $4 billion spending plan to get the state's roads fixed on Wednesday. .
The bill is taking money from multiple sources like "vehicle sales taxes" and "department of motor vehicle fees."
But a group called "The South Carolina Alliance to Fix Our Roads" tells Fox 46 Charlotte that this bill is only a patch.
Executive Director, Bill Ross says the state needs about a billion dollars per year just to maintain the roads. The cost would be $17,000 per mile. Ross tells us many roads are so bad they need to be fully redone which would cost $180,000 per mile.
They say S.C DOT will have a tough time catching up, with new homes and business coming into the state. S.C. DOT estimated cost for fixing all the roads is about $40 billion.
