Charleston County announced on Twitter that there will be nighttime lane closures for storm pipe installation from Sunday, January 21, 2018 through Thursday, January 25, 2018 for Phase 2 of Maybank Highway Improvements Project.
Crews will be installing steel plates as part of the storm pipe installation. The temporary plates will be installed on Maybank Highway between River Road and Fenwick Hall Allee. Drivers are asked to use caution when traveling through the construction zone. All work is weather permitting.
The nighttime lane closures will begin Sunday night, January 21 through Thursday, January 25 between the hours of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Flaggers will be directing traffic safely through the closures.
Drivers traveling through the project’s construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working in the area at all times
The plates are expected to be in place through Thursday, January 25, 2018.
This phase of the project includes the continuation of the lane from the Paul J. Gelegotis Bridge to the existing right turn lane at the intersection of River Road. The widening will help alleviate the afternoon congestion onto Johns Island caused by the merging of the two travel lanes.
