Traffic Alert: April 23-27 Nighttime Lane Closures on Bees Ferry Road


Charleston County Government announces the following traffic alert regarding nighttime lane closures for the Bees Ferry Road Widening Project in West Ashley so workers can relocate existing utilities:

  • April 23-26: Bees Ferry Road at the Intersection of Hunt Club Run and Main Road, lane closure Monday through Thursday from 8 p.m. - 5 a.m.

  • April 25-27: Bees Ferry Road at the Intersection of Grand Oaks Boulevard, lane closure Wednesday through Friday from 8 p.m. - 5 a.m.

  • Workers with flags will direct traffic through the closures.

  • All road work is dependent on weather. If the weather is poor this week, work will continue on the next weather-permitting night (other than a Friday or Saturday).

Drivers traveling through the projectís construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working in the area at all times. The public is also asked to notice traffic control signs, reductions in speed limit and message board information.


The goal of the project, which is expected to be completed April 2014, is to make improvements to the entire 4.5 mile length of Bees Ferry Road from Savannah Highway (U.S. 17) to Ashley River Road (S.C. 61). The project was requested by the City of Charleston and was funded by the Charleston County Transportation Sales Tax Program. Partial funding for the project was approved by voters in the second Transportation Sales Tax bond referendum.


The public can get more information and see photos of the construction process online at Visit the official website at for public meeting notices and up-to-date news and information about all Charleston County Transportation Sales Tax road projects.
