CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Milling and paving of Spring and Cannon Streets began on Monday and will extend into the following week, impacting traffic flow and on-street parking in the area.

During the milling and paving operations, one lane of eastbound traffic on Cannon Street and one lane of westbound traffic on Spring Street will remain open.

Due to the narrowness of the streets, this traffic will be diverted into the parking lanes.

Therefore, on-street parking will not be available on Spring or Cannon Streets until the work is completed.

The work zone will change daily and will be clearly marked with safety barricades and flagmen. Traffic on the cross streets will be subject to intermittent traffic control as equipment works through the intersections.

One half of the roadway will be milled from end-to-end and will be paved the following day.

Pavement markings will be replaced as the work progresses.

Work will take place during daylight hours, beginning at approximately 7 a.m.

Weather permitting, the schedule will be as follows:

Due to the forecast of rain and cold temperatures this week, the resurfacing of Spring and Cannon Streets originally scheduled to begin tomorrow, Dec. 6th, is now scheduled to begin on Dec. 11th.
