BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) - People in Bluffton are getting excited about the new Bluffton Parkway.

Tuesday, project managers walked residents through the plan, which will include construction from Burnt Church Road to Buckingham Plantation Road.

"To improve safety in the Bluffton area, as well as relieve congestion and that'll happen primarily by moving traffic through US 278 over to the Bluffton Parkway. As well as provide additional access to some of the businesses along the new Bluffton Parkway," said project manager, David Batey.
