Our post recently about construction delays on Betsy Kerrison Parkway as a result of the work begun at Kiawah River (rather than Kiawah River Plantation) off Betsy Kerrison Parkway elicited this response from Carter Redd, Managing Director-Kiawah River:
“Kiawah River is a new waterfront community on Johns Island that embraces the sea island lifestyle. The community sits on 2,000 acres and will offer 1,000 homes and homesites and will combine residential, retail and hospitality offerings. We aim to be good neighbors and look forward to keeping you informed. As such, we do wish to address the recent traffic concerns that were referenced in Tidelines.
“Last week there were some lane closures as our construction team added a turn off on Betsy Kerrison Parkway heading toward Kiawah / Seabrook Island and a turn off coming from Kiawah / Seabrook Island turning right into Kiawah River. The lanes have been improved and are already striped. There is a seven-day requirement to allow the paint to cure; after this, we will be repainting and installing signage, which is scheduled to take place Friday, March 2, assuming the weather cooperates. On March 2, drivers using Betsy Kerrigan Highway can anticipate minimal lane closures, however, our intent is to return traffic to four lanes as swiftly as possible.”
Tidelines will continue to provide information on traffic conditions with regard to this project as it becomes available to us.
