New road rules set in northern Beaufort County

Crews will direct traffic on the McTeer Bridge overnight, seven days a week through February so workers can pour concrete for the foundation of a new bridge span, Beaufort County announced in a news release.

Flagging is scheduled from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Delays are expected, and drivers should watch for workers on foot.

Also, the speed limit has been reduced to 35 mph along S.C. 802 in the Burton area, between S.C. 170 and S.C. 280, as paving continues on the Savannah Highway. Traffic patterns will be changing in the area, according to the release. Temporary delays may occur, but lane closures are not expected.

The fine for speeding in a construction zone is $445 or more.
