TREASURE ISLAND A special bridge construction meeting will be held Tuesday, Nov. 20, 6 p.m., at Treasure Island City Hall for residents of Isle of Palms and Capri Isle.

Public Works Director Jim Murphy and members of the design-build team, A2B Engineering and Johnson Brothers, will discuss the construction schedule for the replacement of the Isle of Palms and Capri Isle bridges and how it will affect access to the neighborhoods.

Construction of two bridges to replace the 60-year-old spans is expected to begin in December and will take nearly 300 days to complete. Construction will occur from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work will be performed on Saturdays only when weekday construction is delayed because of weather.

The bridges will be built simultaneously, one half at a time, with construction of the south side first, followed by the north side. A sidewalk will be open throughout the construction for pedestrians.

Two-way traffic will share one lane. Temporary traffic lights on both sides of the bridges will regulate vehicles. Timing of the lights will be adjusted to accommodate heavier traffic times and will include automatic sensors to prevent long backups.

The first phase of construction is expected to be completed by April, at which time traffic will be switched to the new bridges and the remaining older bridges will be demolished to allow construction of the second half of the new bridges.

The new bridges are expected to cost $3.46 million and are planned to be fully opened to two-way traffic by August 2013.
