WASHINGTON — The South Carolina Department of Transportation is challenging the Connector 2000 Association Inc.’s Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing, delaying efforts to restructure $369 million of the agency’s toll road bonds that went into default at the beginning of the year.

The SCDOT filed a motion with the U.S. bankruptcy court in South Carolina on July 30 that urged the court to deny the Connector’s request to enter into Chapter 9 bankruptcy. The motion claims that the toll road does not meet the requirements for Chapter 9 bankruptcy because it is not a municipality.
