The Coleman Boulevard Improvement Projects are an important infrastructure project for the Town of Mount Pleasant. This $18.2 million project is being performed by Blythe Development of Charlotte, North Carolina and is expected to be completed in October 2019. The roadway portion of the total project cost is $14.74M and the utility portion is $3.46M.

This key infrastructure project involves reconstructing Coleman Boulevard between Mill Street and Pherigo Street to create stormwater, roadway and utility upgrades. An adaptive traffic signal system will be installed along Coleman Boulevard to streamline traffic flow and transit amenities such as bus pullouts and shelters will also be installed. Additionally, the project will provide increased travel opportunities for bicycles and pedestrians, decorative street lighting, a way-finding system, landscaped medians and a vibrant activity zone between the roadway and buildings fronting the street.

Coleman Boulevard Construction Update 

June 2019  

Construction is nearly complete in stage 3 of Coleman Boulevard between Mill Street and Fairmont Avenue and Shem Drive.   This work mainly consists of the construction of the center landscaped medians and new mast arm traffic signal installation.  The median construction is nearly complete, and the new traffic signal work is scheduled to start the week June 12 and continue to July 25.   Currently, the contractor is working at night and is nearly complete with the installation of stormwater drainage in Phase 2 of the project, which is the section of Coleman from Fairmont Avenue/Shem Drive to Pherigo Street/Vincent Street.    The remaining items to complete in Phase 2 include grading, sidewalk construction and landscaping.  The relocation of water and sewer utilities is substantially complete. 

In late July the contractor will begin stage 4 construction which involves asphalt removal and paving for the entire section of Coleman Boulevard from Mill Street to east of Pherigo.  This work is scheduled to take place at night until August.  Motorists should expect to ride on uneven and rough pavement until then and are urged to use caution in the construction zone.   

The contract completion date is December 27; however, the project will be substantially complete in September with only pavement markings, landscaping, lighting and punch-list items ongoing at this time. 


Start Date:  September 11, 2017
