SCDOT Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall talks with Gavin Jackson on This Week in South Carolina near Interstate 26 in the area known as Malfunction Junction. The agency is set to break ground next month on the more than $1 billion project that will take eight years to modernize. It is the biggest and one of many transportation infrastructure projects happening in the state to increased revenue from the gas tax approved by the General Assembly in 2017.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for October 16, 2021, we speak with SCDOT Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall about infrastructure and major road projects. Also in this episode: a look at the upcoming hearing for the so-called fetal heartbeat abortion bill in the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals; a report about opioids and addiction in the aftermath of 2020; and more.
