SCDOT COMMISSIONER WOOTEN TO STEP DOWN

Fitsnews, a Columbia, S.C. based news organization reports today:

One of South Carolina’s most powerful highway commissioners has decided to step down from his post, sources familiar with the situation tell FITSNews.

Mike Wooten – whose tenure as chairman of the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) commission was marked by numerous scandals – reportedly notified his colleagues on Wednesday of his intention to step down from the eight-member panel.

Wooten’s term on the SCDOT commission technically expired on February 15, but S.C. Governor Henry McMaster failed to name a replacement for the engineering executive – allowing him to continue serving.

Wooten’s Myrtle Beach firm DDC Engineers was very involved in the construction of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, as well as design plans for the ongoing Myrtle Beach Ocean Outfalls.  Several have been constructed.  The city of Myrtle Beach still has eight infected areas that drain high toxic bacteria on its beaches after rains,  however.

The S.C. Department of Health advises tourists and locals not to swim within 200 feet of those drainage areas for up to 72 hours after any rains.
