Heads up: Traffic shifted at night at bridges to Hilton Head for flyover

New nighttime lane closures on U.S. 278 for the Bluffton Parkway flyover project are shifting traffic at the bridges to Hilton Head Island this week.

Motorists on eastbound U.S. 278 navigate through the Bluffton Parkway Phase 5A Flyover construction zone as work continues on the supports for the parkway's eastbound ramp onto the highway on Monday. Nighttime lane closures have been announced on westbound and eastbound U.S. 278 between Buckingham Plantation Drive and the bridges to Hilton Head Island, starting Monday night and ending on Thursday morning. Eastbound traffic will be tapered to one lane and shifted to westbound 278 prior to Fording Island Road Extension. The highway?s westbound lanes will be two-way until Pinckney Island. The lane closures will begin at 7 p.m. each evening and traffic will be shifted from eastbound to westbound at approximately 9 p.m. Normal traffic patterns will be reestablished by 6 a.m. each following morning. The lane closures and the eastbound traffic shift are necessary for the contractor to place beams on the new eastbound ramp. Law enforcement assistance will be located at Salt Marsh Drive, Fording Island Road Extension, and Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge.
