Road closures extended as work on Centennial Blvd., Hamlet Circle continues
May 8 2019
A Berkeley County resurfacing project of two local roads is underway, and will take longer than expected.
The road closure on Centennial Boulevard is being extended to Friday, May 17. Crews began cement stabilization on Centennial Boulevard on Monday, May 6 and anticipated re-opening the road on Friday, May 10; however, due to conditions of the road, the work is more extensive than originally anticipated.
To ensure the work is properly done, Berkeley County Roads & Bridges will keep the portion of Centennial Boulevard, from Crowfield Boulevard to Gainesborough Drive, closed through Friday, May 17.
According to Berkeley County's Roads and Bridges Department, the county will then begin resurfacing work on Centennial Boulevard and Hamlet Circle as originally planned. The anticipated dates for that work have now changed.
Centennial Boulevard, from Crowfield Boulevard to Gainesborough Drive, will continue to be closed for cement stabilizing until Friday, May 17. Residents who normally use Monsarret Lane to exit Cadbury onto Centennial, will be detoured directly onto Gainesborough Drive, via Isherwod Drive. Residents who use Monsarret Lane, on the other side to exit Pembroke, will be detoured to Lowndes Road. This will take them directly onto the open portion of Centennial Boulevard.
Centennial Boulevard will be resurfaced from Monday, May 20 to Friday, May 24. Motorists should expect traffic delays as work is being performed.
On Hamlet Circle, the resurfacing of two separate portions of the road will take place from Tuesday, May 28 to Friday, May 31, and from Monday, June 3 to Friday, June 7. Motorists should expect traffic delays as work is being performed.
A message board will be placed on Crowfield Boulevard, at Centennial Boulevard and Gainsborough Drive, with road closure dates and access to Pinewood Place. Detour signs will be placed at designated areas to control traffic on the road closed dates for Centennial Boulevard.
All resurfacing work will be controlled by traffic control personnel and the Goose Creek Police Department. The weather could impact the projects.
Centennial Boulevard and Hamlet Circle are two of the four Berkeley County road improvement projects recently funded with $500,000 from the County Transportation Committee. The other two roads are Discovery Drive and Colony Post Loop, where work is expected to begin in June. More information will come later concerning these two road improvement projects. The majority of work on these roads will be done in-house, by Berkeley County Roads and Bridges Department.
