Officials push for new stoplight on William Hilton Pkwy

Posted: Updated:
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

A stretch of the William Hilton Pkwy known for wrecks could soon be getting a stoplight. The intersection is near the Fresh Market shopping center and the Hargray Communications campus.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says 42 preventable wrecks have happened on the stretch since July 2008.

Federal highway administrators say a light should be added if five preventable crashes happen per year.

Hilton Head Island's planning commission voted to add a four way stoplight and a bike and pedestrian crossing.

The plan will now go to the Department of Transportation.
