Construction of the Bluffton Parkway flyover, which will link the road to U.S. 278, will require nightly lane closures starting today and continuing through March.
Contractor R.R. Dawson Bridge Co. is scheduled to widen U.S. 278 at the western end of the bridges to Hilton Head Island beginning Jan. 6 to allow for lane shifts while the company builds the flyover and ramps connecting to the highway.
The shoulder along eastbound U.S. 278 in that area will also be closed until Friday for the contractor to finish installing the silt fence along the highway.
Those lane shifts will begin when the concrete barriers are in place and will last until the project is completed, which is expected to be in October 2015.
Drivers should pay attention to construction signs and be aware of the roadside equipment and crews. Delays are expected.
