Coleman Boulevard Improvement Project
The Coleman Boulevard Improvement Projects are an important infrastructure project for the Town of Mount Pleasant. This $18.2 million project is being performed by Blythe Development of Charlotte, North Carolina and is expected to be completed in August 2019. The roadway portion of the total project cost is $14.74M and the utility portion is $3.46M.
This key infrastructure project involves reconstructing Coleman Boulevard between Mill Street and Pherigo Street to create stormwater, roadway and utility upgrades. An adaptive traffic signal system will be installed along Coleman Boulevard to streamline traffic flow and transit amenities such as bus pullouts and shelters will also be installed. Additionally, the project will provide increased travel opportunities for bicycles and pedestrians, decorative street lighting, a way-finding system, landscaped medians and a vibrant activity zone between the roadway and buildings fronting the street.
Changing Traffic Patterns
Coleman Boulevard Stage 2 Traffic Shift – Mill Street to Fairmont Avenue & Shem Drive
Scheduled for Wednesday October 17 and Thursday October 18
Construction is nearly complete on the Stage 1 west-bound side of Coleman Boulevard. The two remaining items are the planting of palm trees and the installation of decorative lighting. The Stage 2 traffic shift to the east-bound side of Coleman is scheduled for Wednesday, October 17th and Thursday, October 18th. The limits of the traffic shift are from Mill Street to Fairmont Avenue/Shem Drive. This work is dependent upon the weather and the delivery and installation of light poles and fixtures by SCE&G and the delivery and planting of the palm trees. Currently, the contractor has progressed into phase 2 (Fairmont Avenue to Pherigo Street) and will continue in this phase with night work while the Stage 2 traffic shift to the east bound lanes is implemented.
This traffic shift will result in a change to the traffic patterns and motorists are advised to use caution and drive carefully through the construction zone.
