South Carolina Department of Transportation—Hurricane Matthew Reporting

During Hurricane Matthew, SCDOT used technology and innovation to communicate with the public regarding the condition and availability of the transportation infrastructure, always a major concern to the public during a natural disaster. During the storm, SCDOT’s Integrated Transportation Management System (ITMS) collected data and produced maps and reports that clearly communicated the system condition to the public. Initial data entry was performed by field personnel to identify sections of road and/or bridges that were closed due to flooding or damage. This field level input ensured quality data and accurate results, which were vital to keep the public informed. As a result of the $20,000 Hurricane Matthew Reporting, citizens and travelers had confidence in their mobility and could make smarter decisions on travel, increasing safety for all.Hurricane Matthew Plan.jpg
