Drivers who use Summit Parkway in Northeast Richland are asked to use caution when driving on the evening of Tuesday, July 6 because of scheduled roadwork.
A crew contracted by Richland County Public Works will add markings, including arrows and skip lines, to Summit Parkway at the intersection of Summit Centre Drive to improve safety in the area. Skip lines are dashed lines that separate traffic lanes.
The improvements are being made in response to complaints that motorists are entering the left turn lane at Summit Centre Drive and then moving through the intersection toward a center island.
Arrows will also be added to Summit Parkway south of the Summit Centre intersection to designate lane movements onto Clemson Road. The arrows will clearly identify movements for each lane, and the skip lines will help motorists navigate the intersection safely.
Because of high traffic and excessive speeding on Summit Parkway, the crew will work at night. The work is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. and will be completed that night.
Drivers should expect temporary traffic delays from lane closures related to the work.
