Charleston County Government alerts drivers that a nighttime lane closure /

Bees Ferry Nighttime Lane Closure / Flagging Operation
Drivers should expect a nighttime lane closure and flagging operation due to
guardrail installation near the intersection of Still Shadow Drive on Bees Ferry
The lane closure will occur in the left lane of Bees Ferry Road heading from
US-17 towards SC-61.
The contractor will perform the work during the hours of 8:30 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.
on the night of February 13, 2012 and morning of February 14, 2012.
Drivers traveling through
the projectís construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews
working in the area at all times. 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.
The goal of the project, which is expected to be completed April 2014, is to
make improvements to the entire 4.5 mile length of Bees Ferry Road from Savannah
Highway (U.S. 17) to Ashley River Road (S.C. 61). The project was requested by
City of Charleston and was funded by the
Charleston County Transportation Sales Tax Program. Partial funding for the
project was approved by voters in the
second Transportation Sales Tax bond referendum.
