Conway, South Carolina – Work will begin tomorrow on US Hwy. 501 to remove six Bradford Pear trees in the center median between the Forestbrook Road Interchange and the Fantasy Harbour Overpass. This is the first step in a beautification project along a section of US Hwy. 501 near Tanger Outlets to the city limits of Myrtle Beach.
Beginning in April, plants will be installed along the center median to include 85 Crepe Myrtles, 32 Sabal Palms, 126 Tea Olive bushes, 192 shrubs and 498 decorative grasses.
Last fall, the Horry County Planning & Zoning Department’s Keep Horry County Beautiful (KHCB) Committee partnered with the City of Conway Parks & Recreation Department for the Conway Beautification Project.
The Conway Beautification Project locations included the section of US 501 (Bypass) beach bound between the Waccamaw River and the intersection with SC544. There are four cutouts within the center median where ornamental plants and shrubs, such as Day Lilies, Knockout Roses, and Crepe Myrtles were planted.
The second location was also along US 501 (Bypass) south-bound on the right shoulder on the overpass over US 701S. Trees, ornamental shrubs, and grasses were also planted to complement the beautification efforts.
The third location was the corner of US 501 Business and Depot Rd., right before one gets onto to the historic Main Street Bridge into downtown Conway. The planting efforts included Palmetto trees, Little Gem Magnolias, Knockout Roses, Day Lilies and others.
