278 Traffic Safety Improvements


Our community remains concerned regarding the issues and minor accidents that are occurring in front of Windmill Harbour.  Mike Garrigan is chairing our traffic committee and is monitoring this issue very closely.

Good news... Beaufort County has advised us that the project is funded and they expect to start construction around the first quarter 2018.  The project is expected to take approximately 12-18 months to complete.

The changes will include a protected exit from Windmill Harbour (a red light at Mariners Cover to provide gaps) and a protected U Turn just east of Jenkins Island Road for those traveling off island.  The link below, provided by the County, will provide you more details about the project.



As has been previously reported over the past year, HDR Traffic Engineering Consultants and the Beaufort County Traffic Engineering Department have been working to complete the planning, design and engineering documents to widen and improve safety features along US278 on Jenkins Island. 

At the end of September of this year, the design work was estimated to be approximately 75% complete.  Upon completion of the documents they will be presented to the Beaufort County Council and the Town of Hilton Head for review and approval.   Immediately following approval, the project will be let out for bid to select an appropriate construction firm to complete the project.  It is, at this time, projected that work will begin during the first quarter of 2018 with completion some 15-18 months following. 

You will remember that the project funding has been previously approved and provided by Beaufort County Council.  It is anticipated that the end result will benefit not only the residents, visitors, and vendors of Windmill Harbour but also the traveling public along US278.  Be aware that during construction all of the traveling public will have to expect some degree of inconvenience, disruption and delays even though much of the construction will be scheduled for nights and off hour times.  Once more information is provided to the Windmill Harbour Traffic Committee as to the project schedules, this will be made available to you.
