State Infrastructure Bank Approves $120 Million Grant for U.S. 278 Corridor Improvement Project
The South Carolina Transportation Infrastructure Bank has approved a $120 million grant that will be used toward the U.S. 278 Corridor Improvement Project. Officials with the Town of Hilton Head Island and Beaufort County applied for the grant in 2019 to support the project. The corridor project proposes improvements to or replacement of the Karl Bowers Bridge and J. Wilton Graves Bridge connecting Hilton Head Island to the mainland, adjoining roadwork from Moss Creek Drive to Spanish Wells Road on Hilton Head Island, and other multi-modal transportation improvements.

Owner Deck Evenings
Please help us in our efforts to keep offering these opportunities for owners to enjoy the Beach Club. We are still practicing physical distancing in the facility, and we stress that you must wear a mask while inside and refrain from moving the furniture. If you RSVP with a large group (more than 4), the Beach Club attendant will make an effort to set tables and chairs in groups large enough for your entire party to sit together, but we ask that you not do so yourselves. Also, please let us know if you make reservations and cannot attend so that we can accommodate others. We are still limiting attendance, and the limit is 24 owners per Owner Deck Evening. And finally, please do not attend if you have not made a reservation. Reservations are required a minimum of 48 hours prior to each event. So please be a good neighbor, and follow the rules so we can keep having these events. Unfortunately, we have not had 100% compliance in the past and we have had to devise plans accordingly to ensure everyone’s safety.

Owner Deck Evenings will resume on July 21st. Other dates for the remainder of July are the 23rd and the 29th. They will all be held from 4-8 pm at the Beach Club. Email beachclub@shipyardhhi.com or call (843) 785-3310, ext.1000 to make reservations. Thanks!

Food Delivery and Instacart Services
Food services such as Chow Now, Doordash, Grubhub, (Uber Eats already has arrangements with the POA), and Instacart will be allowed complimentary access temporarily, as we work to ensure that owners/guests reduce their exposure to outside facilities as much as possible. This temporary program will go into effect immediately, and it is set to expire on Tuesday, September 8th. As changes may become necessary, we will keep you in the loop accordingly.
