The next phase of construction for the Maybank Highway Improvements Project will start Monday.
This phase includes the continuation of a lane from the Paul J. Gelegotis Bridge to the existing right turn lane at the intersection of River Road.
The widening will help alleviate the afternoon congestion onto Johns Island caused by the merging of the two travel lanes. Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations are also included.
The construction work will take place at night, as the weather permits.
Drivers traveling through the construction zone are asked to be aware of equipment and crews working in the area.
Planning for the projected started in 2007 and construction will be completed in three phases.
