COLUMBIA -- The S.C. Department of Transportation wants to hear what the public thinks about a project to bring technology to the Interstate 26 interchange with Interstate 95.

The agency is taking public comments on its website at www.scdot.org on its nearly $5 million plan to extend the SCDOT's fiber-optic traffic management system to the rural interchange in Orangeburg County. The project would allow workers at the SCDOT's Traffic Management Center to monitor the junction and would include variable message signs over the highways.
