R.R. Dawson Bridge Co. has received approval from Beaufort County to begin construction on the $40 million flyover project linking Bluffton Parkway with U.S. 278.

County spokeswoman Joy Nelson said the Lexington, Ky., company will spend several weeks preparing the site for construction. Residents on Buckingham Plantation Drive should remove their property from beside the road, she said.

County Council approved the flyover project in February despite concerns about its appearance and other issues. The work is expected to take at least two years.
