SCDOT employees to pick up roadside litter statewide on Wednesday

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (DOT) urges all motorists to exercise additional caution on the roads tomorrow due to the presence of numerous litter clean-up crews across the state. The DOT has designated tomorrow as the day for the annual statewide highway “Spring Spruce Up.”

Acting Secretary of Transportation Justin Powell said clean roadsides support South Carolina’s economy and quality of life: “We want folks who live, work, and travel in South Carolina to enjoy driving on our state’s roads. Litter detracts from that experience and can even be a hazard. I appreciate the willingness of these SCDOT employee volunteers as they help prevent litter from trashing the traveling public’s view of our beautiful state.”

SCDOT asks the traveling public to drive cautiously on Wednesday near litter clean-up groups and, as always, to use caution when driving near active road work zones.
