Nighttime lane closures to resume in Bees Ferry Road project

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Road crews will close lanes along Bees Ferry Road beginning Sunday night as part of the ongoing road widening project.

Closures will occur on Savannah Highway at the intersection of Bees Ferry Road Sunday night so workers can install a concrete median at various locations along Bees Ferry Road for asphalt paving, according to officials with Charleston County Transportation Development.

Work will begin at 8 p.m. Sunday night and be finished by Friday, May 23, officials say.

Crews will continue the work between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on weeknights through Friday, officials say. Workers with flags will direct motorists safely through the closures and all construction areas will be marked with cones and signs.

All work is dependent on weather, officials say.

The work is part of the ongoing widening project extending for the entire 4.5 mile length of Bees Ferry Road, from Savannah Highway to Ashley River Road. The project is funded by the Charleston County Transportation Sales Tax Program and through the voter-approved second Transportation Sales Tax bond referendum.
