Traffic disruptions on Joe Frazier Road
Motorists driving through the traffic circle at the intersections of Joe Frazier Road, Pine Grove Road and Morrall Drive need to be aware of some traffic delays. J.R. Wilson Construction will be paving and pouring concrete near and around the circle. This work is expected to last through the end of the month. The circle was opened to traffic June 21 but the work being done now will complete the project.
These improvements will disrupt normal traffic flow so it is important for those who will be driving in the area to plan a few extra minutes to get to their destination.
If you have any questions, please call Sam Hesley at J.R. Wilson Construction Company at 803-943-3311.

Steel Bridge Boat Landing under repairs
Through Friday, August 24, the Courtesy Dock and one lane of the launch ramp at the Steel Bridge Boat Landing in Beaufort County will be closed. Crews will be repairing the floating dock and will be pouring concrete under part of the walkway.
Over the years, mud, debris and water flow have damaged the floating dock making it more difficult for boaters to use. The Steel Bridge Boat Landing is located on U.S. 17, passed Gardens Corner along the Combahee River. Dozens use this landing each week for business and recreational purposes.

Please access the hospital through the Surgery/Birthing Center entrance.  Extra signs will be posted to direct you to the main elevators. Do not use the temporary Emergency Room entrance for access to the rest of the hospital, use the Surgery/Birthing Center entrance.
