City of Florence announces temporary closure at Coit and Darlington intersection

Florence, South Carolina – The City of Florence is planning a closure that will affect Florence residents and local commuters. The City of Florence will temporarily close the intersection at Coit and Darlington to both northbound and southbound traffic from Monday, April 1, 2024, to Friday, April 5, 2024. This closure is needed for the replacement of a gravity sewer pipe that runs through the median of Darlington Street, stretching between McQueen and Coit Streets.

During this period, Darlington Street will remain partially open. The City of Florence said that one eastbound and one westbound lane will stay open for through traffic. However, due to the complicated work involved in replacing the connector manhole, access through the Coit and Darlington intersection for north- and south-bound traffic will be blocked. Commuters will still be able to go east or west through the intersection, but they won’t be able to turn onto Coit Street.

The city has released a plan detailing the affected area and the location of the work to assist drivers. The city is urging drivers to look for alternative routes during the construction. Those who will have to pass through the affected zones should exercise caution.

Motorists are encouraged to follow all posted detours and traffic instructions diligently to ensure the safety of both the workers on site and the commuters.

This infrastructure upgrade is a necessary step to maintain the city’s sewer system’s integrity and efficiency. The City of Florence appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation during this time and is committed to minimizing the impact on the community’s daily life.

The City of Florence will temporarily close the intersection at Coit and Darlington to both northbound and southbound traffic from April 1, to April 5
