I am concerned about the recent construction at the intersection of Gumtree Road, William Hilton Parkway and the Cross Island Parkway on Hilton Head Island.
It appears that the three lanes headed east are now being reduced to two at this intersection. This has already caused large traffic delays all the way to the bridge during rush hour. I can only imagine the additional delays it is going to cause on Saturdays in the summer.
Before the construction is completed, I would advise that someone from the newspaper visit this intersection at 8:15 to 8:30 a.m. on a weekday during rush hour to see the effect it is having. The final outcome of the construction is going to make traffic worse, not better. I think that it might be best to cancel the construction and dig up the cement that has been laid.
Never miss a local story.
