Construction of new ‘Food Lion intersection’ begins
Motorists can expect temporary lane closures, temporary traffic patterns and construction activity at the “Food Lion intersection” of Route 17 Bypass and Route 17 Business near Saluda as work begins on an intersection improvement project.
Construction is scheduled to begin this week and will be ongoing at the intersection through July 1, 2015.
Entrances to the Food Lion grocery store will remain open throughout the project.
The existing median at the intersection will be modified. A new crossover will be built to the north of the existing crossover. New channelized left-turn lanes will be built at the intersection in front of Food Lion.
