Public Notice: Portions of Seabrook Island Road (eastbound lane) will be temporarily closed on Wed. October 20, 2021; bike pathway to be restricted on Thu. October 21, 2021 and Fri. October 22, 2021 due to tree work.
On Wednesday, October 20, 2021, a portion of the eastbound (outbound) lane of Seabrook Island Road will be closed due to tree trimming. (This is between Andell Bluff Boulevard (Marine entrance) and the traffic circle (See diagram below).)
A tree contractor will be working in the right-of-way to limb up several trees prior to construction of a new left-turn lane into the future Seafields senior living community. Set up will commence between 7:30 am and 9:00 am on Wednesday, and the trimming work will take place between the hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm. During these times, Seabrook Island Road will be reduced to a single lane with alternating traffic. It is anticipated that the trimming work will be completed in a single day.
On Thursday, October 21, 2021, and Friday, October 2, 2021 the tree contractor will be back to remove five trees at the entrance to the future Seafields project. At this time, it is anticipated that the tree contractor will be able to access and remove these trees from the bike pathway; however, it is possible that the outbound lane of Seabrook Island Road may be temporarily closed on Thursday and/or Friday if deemed necessary for public safety. Pedestrians and bicyclists are advised that portions of the bike pathway may be temporarily closed or restricted on Thursday and Friday. It is anticipated that the tree removal work will be completed by the end of the day on Friday.
Unlike the previous lane closure, which took place on September 30, 2021 and impacted the entire length of Seabrook Island Road, this closure will be confined to a single area between Andell Bluff Boulevard (Marine entrance) and the traffic circle (See diagram below). Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists are encouraged to allow additional time if traveling to and from Seabrook Island between Wednesday and Friday. Drivers should also be prepared to stop when instructed by flaggers.
To report an issue while workers are present, please contact Town Hall at by phone at (843) 768-9121 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
