BEAUFORT, S.C. (June 6, 2023) – The City of Beaufort will begin a dredging project on Battery Creek Road and Jane Way on Wednesday, June 7.

Lowcountry All Works, the contractor on the project, will place matting down along the work area to protect the area from the heavy equipment. Battery Creek Road may experience some traffic interruptions when the mats are delivered on June 7.  

Once the matting is in place, dredging operations will begin. 

Project Manager Neal Pugliese said that the project is intended to eliminate accumulated silt  and vegetative debris from the affected waterway, which has interrupted the free flow of water from the Duck Pond to the Battery Creek River. This project will also significantly reduce the potential for localized flooding due to extreme weather events like hurricanes, tropical storms,  and “microburst rain bombs,” he said.

The project is expected to take about two weeks. Any questions can be directed to Pugliese at or 843-986-5609.
