JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C.(News Release) – Joint Base Charleston plans to temporarily close Red Bank Road on the Weapons Station for the purpose of CSX railway maintenance.
Beginning at 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2016, Red Bank Road at Liberty Hall Road on the JB Charleston Weapons Station side of Liberty Hall Road will be closed for railroad maintenance.
It is expected to remain closed until 4 a.m., Monday, May 9, 2016.
“I recognize closing Red Bank Road, even for a short period of time, will create major traffic challenges for Weapons Station commuters,” said Col. Robert Lyman, JB Charleston commander. “I ask for your patience and understanding while this required maintenance is completed. I thank the entire JB Charleston family for your continued support in spite of this inconvenience.”
CSX railway maintenance will prevent traffic from entering or exiting the Weapons Station at Red Bank Road and Henry E. Brown Jr. Boulevard.
Detour routes will be posted at both locations to guide traffic.
Access to the Weapons Station during the closure will be via Cypress Gardens Road, Bushy Park Road, and Liberty Hall Road.
All Weapons Station services and activities will remain open during the road closure.
JB Charleston reminds the public to please use caution while driving through work zones.
