The Leadership Team at the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) accepted the “Build with the Best Award” presented by the Carolinas AGC (Association of General Contractors) on behalf of the entire SCDOT Team.

The award is given to a non-contractor for contributions to the betterment of the construction industry and the overall economic welfare of the Carolinas.

SCDOT was honored for the emergency response and recovery of South Carolina’s highway system after the historic, 1,000-year flood struck the state in October of 2015. The award cited the pre-planning and coordination that effectively managed this major catastrophe.

The award was presented at the SCDOT Commission’s monthly meeting February 16, in Columbia.
