Mount Pleasant Waterworks is coordinating a lane closure that will affect the Ben Sawyer Boulevard while a water main is pulled below the Intracoastal Waterway next week.
The lane closure will happen May 25 before next Tuesday’s morning commute, Mount Pleasant said in a news release.
“The closure will start prior to the morning commute and take place along a 1-mile section of the roadway near the entrance of Toler’s Cove,” the town said.
The lane closure is happening to accommodate construction for a 5,200 foot, 18-inch steel water main, which is being pulled below the Intracoastal Waterway. The project is a joint effort with Charleston Water System.
Mount Pleasant Waterworks said the pipe work is expected to take about 24 hours to finish.
“Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians travelling in the area during this time should expect delays and are asked to comply with flagging operations and to be aware of equipment and crews,” the town said.
Also, access to the path along the Ben Sawyer Boulevard causeway will not be available during the lane closure and construction work to ensure the project can be finished without putting anyone’s safety at risk, the town said.
