The detour will occur from 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 15 to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 6 for contractors to install drainage pipes and a large underground water quality structure at the intersection of Oyster Point Row and Camp Road for the Folly Road at Camp Road Intersection Improvements Project.

The Folly Road at Camp Road Intersection Improvements Project on James Island involves improvements to Folly Road from about 1,000 feet south of Camp Road to the intersection with Eugene Gibbs Street and Rivers Point Row, and improvements to Camp Road from West Madison Avenue to Oyster Point Row. Improvements will relieve traffic congestion and localized flooding by adding turn lanes and upsizing drainage pipes. Bike lanes and sidewalks will also be added.
