Steel Girders to be Set Over US 17 Bypass/SC 707 Intersection for the North Bound Bridge

Conway, South Carolina – Steel girders for the north bound bridge will be set over the US 17 Bypass/SC 707 and Farrow Parkway intersection starting on Monday, February 3, from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. and continuing the same hours the evening of Tuesday, February 4, weather permitting.

During this time period, motorists will be able to travel north and south bound on US 17 Bypass, however no left turns will be allowed from US 17 Bypass at the intersection of SC 707 and Farrow Parkway. Motorists traveling on SC 707 and Farrow Parkway when approaching the intersection will not be allowed to travel through the intersection or make left turns. Only right turns will be allowed off of SC 707 and Farrow Parkway onto US 17 Bypass.

The recommended access for south bound US 17 Bypass and SC 707 wanting to go east on Farrow Parkway would be to use the US 17/SC 544 Interchange. The recommended access for north bound US 17 and Farrow Parkway wanting to go west on SC 707 would be to use the Fantasy Harbour/US 17 Interchange. The alternative detours/routes are placed on signage throughout the vicinity of the project.

Also there will be limited nighttime lane closures on a portion of the inside north bound lane on US Highway 17 Bypass from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Wednesday, February 5, and Thursday, February 6, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Again this will reduce traffic down to one lane going north bound on a very small section of US Highway 17 Bypass near the construction project.
