Maintenance Project on Hilton Head Island Traffic Signals

Maintenance work continues on traffic signal mast arms at various intersections on the Island. Mast arms are the pole fixtures to which traffic signals are attached. The project, which began in late March, involves repainting the mast arms on William Hilton Parkway where it intersects with Arrow Road, Singleton Beach Road and Beachwood Drive. Repainting work has been completed on the mast arm at the intersection of Palmetto Bay Road at Target. The remainder of the project is expected to completed by April 25.

While the project is underway, motorists are urged to use extra caution and patience in work areas as traffic flow may be impacted. Through lanes on Palmetto Bay Road and William Hilton Parkway will remain open during the entire project. Traffic in turn lanes and side streets may experience periodic and temporary lane closures during work periods.
