Bike and Walking Path Closed

As many of you may have heard, the bike and walking path from Town Hall to Freshfields Village is closed. The Town of Seabrook Island is repairing the path in multiple places. To read the statement from the town concerning this, click here.

The work is scheduled to start on Tuesday, February 18 and will take about 3 weeks to complete.  The weather or other factors may alter this time frame.

This means that walkers and bikers should not use this path until work is completed.  The Town is working on opening it as soon as possible. In the meantime, please travel to Freshfields by car if you can.  If you are like many of us that enjoy the bike or walk to Freshfields for exercise, choose an alternate route for the time it is closed.  The loop around Seabrook Island is about 7 miles and there are many cut-through roads that can shorten or lengthen your exercise time.

Here are few reminders about biking, driving and walking on the road:

  • Biking: Riding a bike on a road entails the same rules that vehicles must abide by – using hand signals, obeying traffic signs, follow the same traffic pattern, etc.  To see a complete set of SC Bike Laws governing biking on roads, click here.
  • Driving: If you are driving on the road where people are also biking, please be patient and cautious.  Don’t drive up too close to bikers, only pass if it is safe and of course, don’t pass on an island.
  • Walking: Walk single file facing traffic and be careful when crossing the street.

The Town of Seabrook Island will be posting updates on their website as they receive them.  Please click here to access the town website.
