Portions of Seabrook Island Road (eastbound lane) will be temporarily closed on Wed. October 20th; bike pathway to be restricted on Thu. October 21st and Fri. October 22nd due to tree work
On Wednesday, October 20th, a portion of the eastbound (outbound) lane of Seabrook Island Road will be closed due to tree trimming. A tree contractor will be working in the right-of-way to limb up several trees prior to construction of a new left-turn lane into the future Seafields senior living community. Set up will commence between 7:30 am and 9:00 am on Wednesday, and the trimming work will take place between the hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm. During these times, Seabrook Island Road will be reduced to a single lane with alternating traffic. It is anticipated that the trimming work will be completed in a single day.
On Thursday, October 21st, and Friday, October 22nd, the tree contractor will be back to remove five trees at the entrance to the future Seafields project. At this time, it is anticipated that the tree contractor will be able to access and remove these trees from the bike pathway; however, it is possible that the outbound lane of Seabrook Island Road may be temporarily closed on Thursday and/or Friday if deemed necessary for public safety. Pedestrians and bicyclists are advised that portions of the bike pathway may be temporarily closed or restricted on Thursday and Friday. It is anticipated that the tree removal work will be completed by the end of the day on Friday.
Unlike the previous lane closure, which took place on September 30th and impacted the entire length of Seabrook Island Road, this closure will be confined to a single area between Andell Bluff Boulevard (Marina entrance) and the traffic circle (See diagram below). Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists are encouraged to allow additional time if traveling to and from Seabrook Island between Wednesday and Friday. Drivers should also be prepared to stop when instructed by flaggers.

As of October 1, 2021, the town’s “off-peak” season rules pertaining to pets on the beach are now in effect. Pursuant to Section 32-44 of the Town Code, also known “Beach Rules for Pets Ordinance,” the beaches of Seabrook Island are divided into three zones. The requirements for each zone during the “off-peak” season are provided below:
Restricted Area (Red)
Limited Restriction Area (Yellow)
General Beach Area (Green)
As a reminder, when an animal is allowed to be off-leash, it must be effectively controlled by a competent person from: (a) entering any area on or adjacent to the beach in which a pet is prohibited; (b) destroying or damaging any property; (c) attacking or threatening to attack any person or any other animal or pet in any manner; or (d) being a nuisance to other beach goers.
When a pet is required to be on a leash, it must be restrained using a physical restraint made of cord, rope, strap, chain or other material effective for restraining the type and size of animal to which it is attached. In addition, the physical restraint must be no more than sixteen (16) feet in length, secured to the animal’s collar or harness, and continuously held by a competent person physically capable of restraining the animal. Animals under voice control, or under control of remotely operated devices (such as electronic collars), are considered to be “off leash.”
The beaches of Seabrook Island are actively patrolled by code enforcement officers employed by the town. Individuals who are found guilty of violating any ordinance of the town may be subject to fines up to $1,087.50 per offense (including court fees) upon conviction.
To report a violation during the off-peak season, please contact Town Hall at (843) 768-9121.
The town’s “off-peak” season rules will remain in effect until March 31, 2022.
