Drivers on eastbound U.S. 278 between Island West and Simmonsville Road in Bluffton should expect traffic delays starting Sunday night as asphalt work begins on the highway widening project.

The travel lanes will be shifted to the new outside lane as the work progresses each night, according to a news release from the contractor, APAC Southeast.

The asphalt operation will move to the westbound lanes as early as April 14.
