Bluffton flyover construction costs higher than expected

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Beaufort County is trying to figure out if they can afford to build the Bluffton flyover.

Six companies bid on the project that would connect the Bluffton Pkwy to U.S. 278.

The state has certified R.R. Dawson Bridge Company in Kentucky as the lowest bidder but their bid is seven percent higher than the county's estimate of $34.5 million.

The county director of engineering did not say if this will delay or cancel the project.
