The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for Tuesday, January 15, 2019, concerning the proposed relocation of US 501 in Myrtle Beach.  The proposed improvements along US 501 are from Broadway Street to 9th Avenue.

The meeting will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Train Depot, located at 851 Broadway Street in Myrtle Beach. The meeting will have a drop-in type format with displays for viewing and citizens will have the opportunity to provide written comments.  Formal, verbal comments will not be taken during this meeting; however, in the future if an official Public Hearing is held, citizens will have the opportunity to make formal, verbal comments.
