Bowman Road loses one lane for 2 weeks

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Work on Johnnie Dodds Boulevard will cause Bowman Road to lose one lane for the next two weeks.

Charleston County officials say the shift will occur daily between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. as part of the Johnnie Dodds Boulevard Improvements Project in Mt. Pleasant in order to complete the drainage work on Bowman Road.

  • Drivers should expect a sequence of traffic shifts to be implemented by road crews on Bowman Road East between McDonald's and Nason Medical beginning Monday through Sunday, Aug. 28.
  • Crews will shift traffic nightly for approximately two weeks to complete the drainage work on Bowman Road.
  • All construction is dependent on the weather.
  • The construction areas will continue to be marked with construction traffic cones and signs.

Drivers traveling through the construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working in the area. Alternative routes are recommended if possible. The public is also asked to notice traffic control signs, reductions in speed limit and message board information, and to note that all road work is dependent on the weather.

The goal of the project, which is expected to be completed in the fall of 2012, is to improve the traffic flow in and out of Mount Pleasant, especially before and after school and work hours.
