Dorchester County will be upgrading the drainage system on Renau Boulevard at the Rumphs Hill Creek crossing to improve safety and reduce flooding in the area.

This upgrade is necessary to repair and enlarge the drainage system that has been damaged/eroded from a series of weather events.

In order to safely complete the upgrades, Renau Boulevard must be closed to through traffic.

The road closure will begin on Monday, July 22. 2019 and is expected to remain in place until Monday, September 23, 2019. A detour will be in place.

Improvements include replacing the current pipe crossing with a box culvert, adding new guard rails, and installing new pavement. Sea Island Land Development will complete the project. 

Barricades, cones, and signs will be in place at/near the construction zone.
