Traffic Alert: Closures/Delays for Johnnie Dodds Boulevard and Bowman Road Continue Through May 19

With clear, spring weather forecasted, construction crews will continue installing underground drainage pipes, curb and gutter, and preparing and placing asphalt for the Johnnie Dodds Boulevard Improvements Project in Mount Pleasant. All construction areas will be marked with construction cones and signs. The following, previously announced work will continue through Saturday, May 19:

Johnnie Dodds Boulevard Nighttime Lane Closures

East Frontage Road

West Frontage Road

Bowman Road Closure Over Shem Creek:
As previously announced, the current phase of the project includes the temporary closure of the portion of Bowman Road that goes over Shem Creek (between McDonald’s and Kmart on Bowman Road) while crews replace the small bridge. This closure to Bowman Road began on Monday, April 16, and will be in place for five months. Construction areas will continue to be marked with traffic control devices and signs as they are now.

Drivers will be detoured as follows:

Drivers traveling through the project’s construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working in the area at all times. 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 spring of 2013, is to improve the traffic flow in and out of Mount Pleasant, especially before and after school and work hours. The project is funded by the Charleston County Transportation Sales Tax and managed by Charleston County Government’s RoadWise Program, in close coordination with the Town of Mount Pleasant and the S.C. Department of Transportation.

The public can get up-to-date project information, including construction status and traffic alerts, online at http://www.ccroadwise.org/projects/johnnie_dodds/index.php.
