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.
