Two weeks of lane closures ahead on popular route to Savannah, I-95. Here’s where

Lane closures are coming for the next two weeks on U.S. 17 — a popular route between I-95 and Savannah.

Daytime and nighttime lane closures are planned for the highway, also known as S.C. 170 and Speedway Boulevard, between I-95 and the intersection with South Okatie Highway, or S.C. 315.

The lane closures are to allow for paving and for work on the road’s shoulder, according to a news release from Preferred Materials, the construction company performing the work.

Preferred Materials will be working on the 8.9-mile stretch of highway from Oct. 20 through Nov. 1, project manager Blake Martin told The Island Packet on Monday.

The lane closures will affect both northbound and southbound traffic.
