Traffic Alert: Change to Traffic Pattern on International Drive Next Week

On February 2, 2018 in County News

Southern Asphalt, Inc. will be implementing a change to the traffic pattern on the existing paved section of International Drive, from west of the driveway of Horry County Fire Rescue Station 45 to the end of the paved road beginning in the morning on Tuesday, February 6. This change will take place after school traffic subsides on the morning of February 6.

In general, the plan involves reducing traffic to one through lane in each direction and closing the left and right turn lanes into the school driveways.  After they finish installing the asphalt build-up on the north side of the road, they will switch the lane closures to the other side.  We anticipate traffic impacts to and from all three Horry County Schools on this section of International Drive. The turn lane closures will be in place for 24 hours a day for approximately one to two weeks, depending on the weather.
To keep traffic moving through the work zone, Southern Asphalt will have personnel / flaggers at the school driveways and at Wheatfield Drive (entrance to The Farm) during daylight hours. 
The public should anticipate some delays during this relatively brief change in traffic patterns.  Southern Asphalt will place message boards at both ends of this section of International Drive to notify the traveling public about this upcoming and temporary change.
