From approximately 9pm to 2am tonight, traffic at the Yeamans Hall and Loftis Road intersection will be stopped intermittently due to a production crew with a movie production company needing that area to film. Police will be in that area to direct traffic, but if you are traveling during that time, you can expect some delays.
This morning at approximately 2:20am, the Hanahan Dispatch Center received a 911 call about a vehicle striking the media, jumping over it and hitting the dirt pile on the other side. The caller told our dispatch center the airbags had been deployed.
While there were no serious injuries sustained during this incident, we wanted to encourage citizens to take your time and learn the new roadway. Foster Creek Road is no longer a 45mph zone in that area and you must slow down before attempting to navigate through the roundabout.
It is critical for motorists to first and foremost, obey the posted speed limit and be aware of your surroundings. The roundabout on Foster Creek Road is currently designated as a construction area and a temporary speed limit of 35 MPH is in effect for this area of Foster Creek Road; go the speed limit. The orange barrels are in place for two reasons; the first reason is to let motorists know they are in a construction zone and to use caution by reducing your speed and being aware of your surroundings. The second reason for the barrels is to ensure the safety of the workers who are working on the road and the roundabout. Obeying your speed limit, driving with due regard, and always being aware of your surroundings will go a long way in ensuring your safety no matter where you are driving.

The construction phase will be over within a month and a half. Once the traffic cones and barrels have been removed from the roadway, it will be a lot easier to navigate.
Everyone needs to use caution for the NEW intersection. The vehicles need to yield and use their turn signals as they are exiting the roundabout. Please be safe!

Those living in the area of Bowen’s Corner Elementary School (currently under construction) in Hanahan will soon notice work along the roadways in the area.
Crews will begin working to clear debris and trees in the area of Williams Lane and Foster Creek on Monday, January 29. That work is expected to be complete in about seven days, and work to relocate underground piping and utilities will follow. The work is part of the school construction project, which includes the eventual construction of a roundabout at the intersection of the two roads.
Lane and road closures are not anticipated, but there may be some necessary traffic control at times as trucks and equipment move in and out of the area.
It’s expected all road work related to the school’s construction will be completed during the summer of 2018.
We appreciate your patience as we continue to grow Berkeley County School District.
