Traffic Alert: Nighttime Lane Closures on Houston Northcutt Blvd. as part of Johnnie Dodds Blvd. Project

Lane closure from 8 p.m. – 6 a.m. Jan. 22 - Feb. 20


Charleston County Government announces the following lane closure as part of continuing road work on the Johnnie Dodds Boulevard Improvements Project in Mount Pleasant:


  • The lane closure will occur from 8 p.m. – 6 a.m. from Sunday, Jan. 22 through Monday, Feb. 20

  • The section of Houston Northcutt Boulevard between Johnnie Dodds Boulevard and Mount Pleasant Town Hall will be reduced from two lanes to one lane as needed for the work.

  • The work is necessary for crews to install underground storm drainage pipes.

  • The work is being conducted at night in an effort to reduce impact on drivers.

  • If the weather is poor any day during Jan. 22 – Feb. 20, the closure will continue until the work is completed.

  • The speed limit on Johnnie Dodds Boulevard has been reduced from 45 to 35 mph in the construction zone when crews are working. Temporary signs will alert the public of the speed limit reduction.


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 Charleston County’s Transportation Sales Tax Program in close coordination with the Town of Mount Pleasant and the S.C. Department of Transportation.
