March 20, Harbor View Road News
Charleston County Reported the following:
Permitting for the Harbor View Road project is taking longer than our schedule anticipated. We currently expect to begin construction in late spring or early summer of this year. I apologize that I cannot give you a better date at this time, but once all permits are received I will be able to give more exact dates.
Work on Harbor View Road can occur at all hours of the day, however construction work that requires a lane closure during the weekday must occur at night. The SCDOT has directed that lane closures on Harbor View Road only occur between the hours of 8pm to 6am Sunday through Thursday nights. All work performed at night will require sufficient lighting for safety of the motorist and construction workers.
Permitted lanes closures during Saturday and Sunday are still being evaluated by SCDOT. We suspect that due to the low traffic volume on the weekends that lane closures may be permitted during day time hours on Saturday and Sunday. There is also the possibility that SCDOT may give more relaxed hours for the weekday restrictions during the summer months when school is not in session. However, this will not be determined until a later date when a traffic count can be conducted after school dismisses for the summer.
Thank you Councilwoman Berry for sharing this news.
