Bollards installed in Old Town Bluffton

bollardsbluftonThe town of Bluffton recently installed retractable bollards to divert traffic on Calhoun Street during Old Town events. The bollards are located at the corners of Lawton and Lawrence streets to block vehicles during festivals and provide for a more pedestrian-friendly, walkable environment.

According to Mayor Lisa Sulka, the new bollards mean more officers will be on patrol versus blocking traffic between those two streets during major events. Event organizers will also be able to allocate their funds to other items rather than pay for police to block traffic between the main section of Calhoun Street.
