Beaufort Co. close to approving traffic light in Okatie

Posted: Updated:
OKATIE, SC (WTOC) -

Beaufort County is close to approving a new traffic light on U.S. 278 in Okatie.

The Island Packet reports that earlier this week the county endorsed a $600,000 project adding the light to the intersection of Hampton Parkway and U.S. 278.

It would also build a road linking the neighborhood Island West with the intersection. The neighborhood association has been looking to make crossing U.S. 278 from the neighborhood safer for more than a decade.
