Traffic roars along U.S. 278 on the eastbound approach to the Hilton Head bridges on Tuesday, in the Bluffton Parkway flyover construction zone, where workers have placed barrels and closed off the eastbound shoulder with concrete barriers. Though no work was being conducted on Tuesday night, the R.R. Dawson Bridge Company, which is constructing the flyover, has announced that motorists can expect lane closures in both the east- and west-bound lanes between 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. through March 28 between Buckingham Plantation Drive and the bridges to the island, Motorists should expect delays. The closures will allow workers to place asphalt and pavement markings for the widening and install temporary concrete barriers for lane shifts. Drivers should expect to see traffic control signs, flaggers, reductions in the speed limit and message board information. All road work is dependent on the weather.
