Berkeley County is conducting overnight lane closures this month for paving operations on Highway 176 in the vicinity of the new Nexton Parkway intersection.
Work is expected to start on Thursday, March 12 and conclude on Monday, March 23 and will take place from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, excluding Fridays and Saturdays. During the project, eastbound and westbound lanes on U.S. 176 will be closed one at a time, as needed. Motorists are advised to drive with caution and expect minor traffic delays.
The purpose of the project is to provide a more direct route between U.S. 176 and Interstate 26 via Nexton Parkway. Upon completion of Cane Bay Spine Road C by the developer, the route will also provide Cane Bay residents with an additional access point to U.S. 176.
Following paving operations, work crews will install a traffic signal, place pavement markings, install a guardrail on a section of Nexton Parkway, and place permanent seeding along highway shoulders and ditches.
This project is expected to be completed by April 8. Funding is from the County’s One-Cent Sales Tax Program. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
