Beginning March 2 through May 12, construction crews will be working on the Kiawah Island Parkway from the main KICA gate to and including the Freshfields roundabout as a part of the Kiawah Island Parkway Improvement Project (Phase 1). Traffic control, construction crews, and construction equipment will be present along the Parkway for the duration of the project. The targeted completion date is May 12, 2020.
The bike path from the Kiawah main gate to Freshfields will remain open. During the day, the Town does not anticipate any formal lane closures, but there could be intermittent traffic delays. To minimize interference, the majority of construction will take place in the evening and overnight. There will be periods (cited below), where the Parkway will be reduced to a single-lane during evening/early morning hours (7:30 pm – 6:00 am).
The schedule for the Parkway Improvement Project (Phase 1) is as follows*:
* Since the material used for pavement preservation is weather and temperature dependent, the schedule of the timeline above is tentative.
