Why are bridge plans not available on the Plans Online?
Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), SCDOT is not required to provide bridge plans to non-Department entities unless the release is necessary for procurement purposes or the plan request is made pursuant to a judicial order. A special Bridge Plans Request Form must be completed and submitted to the Plans Storage Office for processing and approval. See also: SCDOT Engineering Directive Memorandum # 18.
