South Forest Beach Drive will continue to be closed in the northeast direction from the Holiday Inn/ Beach House entrance to Coligny Circle through Monday April 6, 2020 while construction crews for the Town of Hilton Head Island complete roadway work.

On Monday, April 6, crews will pave South Forest Beach Drive in the northeast direction from the Holiday Inn / Beach House entrance to Coligny Circle and in the southwest direction from Coligny Circle to the new signalized crosswalk. In the southwest direction, one lane of traffic will be open during paving work.  South Forest Beach Drive will be re-opened in both directions by Tuesday, April 7.

Motorists needing to travel from South Forest Beach Drive to Pope Avenue will need to detour through Deallyon Avenue to Cordillo Parkway. The left hand lane of South Forest Beach Drive in the southwest direction heading from Coligny Circle toward the Coligny beach parking lot will be closed during this time frame. All motorists exiting Coligny Circle to South Forest Beach Drive will need to exit through the right lane.

On Thursday, April 9, crews will be placing the decorative pattern in the asphalt for the new 15 foot wide pedestrian crosswalk on South Forest Beach Drive. Traffic will be stopped in one lane at a time during this construction.

Traffic will be controlled through the work zone via signs, traffic control devices and flaggers. Please use caution when traveling in this area. For more information, contact Jennifer Lyle at jenniferl@hiltonheadislandsc.gov or 843-341-4779.
