Traffic Alert: Daytime Lane Shift on Bowman Road as part of the Johnnie Dodds Boulevard Improvements Project

Traffic shift from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012


Charleston County Government announces the following lane shift to traffic as part of continuing construction on the Johnnie Dodds Boulevard Improvements Project in Mount Pleasant:


  • Drivers should expect a temporary lane shift on Bowman Road between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26.

  • The shift will not reduce the number of lanes available to traffic, and access to all businesses will be normal.

  • Temporary signs will be placed in the area to make drivers aware of the lane shift.

  • The work is necessary for crews to install underground utilities.

  • If the weather is poor on Jan. 26, the lane shift will occur on the next weather permitting day.


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.
