Horry County Legacy Business Recognition: Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union

 The Horry County Historic Preservation Commission’s Legacy Business Recognition Program will recognize the Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union on July 21, 2021, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Myrtle Beach branch located at 1010 21st Avenue North at 1 p.m. The ceremony is free and open to the public.

 On April 28, 1958, the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base Federal Credit Union (MBAFB), now known as Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union, was established to provide needed financial services to the civilian and military personnel serving at the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. The MBAFB Credit Union was originally a part-time operation with one employee located in a one-room office in the base combat support facility. Over the years, the Credit Union charter was amended and the company expanded and diversified its membership. With the announced closure of the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base in 1991, the MBAFB Credit Union changed its name to Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union. Join us as we celebrate with this company for its 62-years in business.

 The Horry County Legacy Business Recognition Program pays tribute to local businesses that have contributed to the economic heritage of Horry County for more than 50 continuous years.

 For more information, contact Lou Conklin, Senior Planner, with Horry County Planning & Zoning at (843) 915-5340.

Carolina Forest Boulevard Widening Project: Night Construction Date Change

 
 
Due to the anticipated inclement weather, Carolina Forest Boulevard construction has been canceled for the week of July 6-9, 2021.
 
Construction on the Carolina Forest Boulevard and River Oaks intersection has been rescheduled, weather depending, for Sunday, July 11, 2021, and ending the morning of Friday, July 16, 2021, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily. Motorists should plan an alternate route, if possible, as there will be delays, flagging operations, lane shifts, and detours as necessary to install the remaining traffic signal components, final asphalt surfacing, concrete island, and pavement markings. Extra caution is urged as the construction area will be very congested with workers and equipment during this timeframe; portable light plants will be strategically placed to aid the visibility of motorists as they navigate the work zone. Motorists are reminded to obey all traffic control devices and use extra patience.
