Bay Road Closure July 22-26,2019

A section of Bay Road in Horry County will be closed, July 22-26, 2019 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, weather permitting. Bay Road will be closed between Grand Oak Boulevard and Copper Leaf Drive. Residents in the surrounding neighborhoods, near this section of the road, should plan to reenter their neighborhoods using the same route they take when they exit the neighborhood. Residents and businesses located within the closure limits will be provided access. We ask that folks traveling in the area please be patient as they may experience some travel delays.

We encourage everyone to be mindful of the work zones affecting the roadways. The traffic control devices are there for the safety of the residents, visitors, and road crews.

The project will improve drainage infrastructure in the area. The completion date on the project is to be determined. Residents in the area can expect some road closures throughout the duration of the project and are encouraged to stay tuned to local broadcasts or visit horrycounty.org for the latest updates on the project.

Horry’s Heroes: Nick Cosentino Hero for July

Conway, South Carolina – In an effort to recognize the many United States military veterans in Horry County, the Horry County Veteran’s Affairs Office has begun a monthly recognition program entitled “Horry’s Heroes” in which a veteran will be featured on the County’s social media platforms each month.

All honorably discharged veterans (active duty, reserve, retired and/or deceased) from 1900 to present are eligible to be featured. All that is needed is a picture and basic information (form).

The veteran of the month for July 2019 is US Navy Culinary Specialist Third Class Nick Cosentino of Little River. Nick served in the Korean War, Europe and stateside. He loved serving aboard the ships he was stationed on. He volunteers with the Horry County Police and the American Legion so that he can help his fellow veterans.
