construction zone when crews are working. Temporary signs will alert the

working in the area at all times. Alternative routes are recommended if
possible. The public is also asked to notice traffic control signs, reductions
in speed limit and message board information, and to note that all road work is
dependent on the weather.

2013, is to improve the traffic flow in and out of Mount Pleasant, especially
before and after school and work hours. The project is funded by
Charleston County’s Transportation Sales Tax Program
in close coordination with the
Town of Mount Pleasant
