Traffic Alert: Nighttime Lane Closures for the Folly Road at Camp Road Intersection Improvements Project

Charleston County Government announces that nighttime lane closures will continue on Folly Road in both directions for the Folly Road at Camp Road Intersection Improvements Project. The closures will be in place from just north of the Folly Road and Rivers Point Row intersection to approximately 1000 feet south of the Folly Road and Camp Road intersection. Crews will be utilizing flagging operations to control traffic while conducting paving operations on Folly Road. This paving will be placed over the existing roadway and also in the new areas required to widen the intersections. The traffic will be restored to its current pattern each morning prior to rush hour. All work is weather permitting. 

At no time will the entire roadway be blocked to traffic.

August 6 – August 17

• Nighttime lane closures will occur on Folly Road Sunday night between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., and Monday through Thursday nights between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

• Flagmen will be on site to control traffic. 

• Drivers will have access to businesses and residential properties along Folly and Camp roads at all times.

• At least one lane in each direction will remain open to traffic under flagging operations.

• Drivers traveling through the project’s construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working in the area at all times.

The Folly Road at Camp Road Intersection Improvements Project on James Island involves improvements to Folly Road from about 1,000 feet south of Camp Road to the intersection with Eugene Gibbs Street and Rivers Point Row, and improvements to Camp Road from West Madison Avenue to Oyster Point Row. Improvements will relieve traffic congestion and localized flooding by adding turn lanes and upsizing drainage pipes. Bike lanes and sidewalks will also be added.
