Traffic Pattern Shift for Old Socastee Highway/Old Railroad Bed Road

On November 22, 2013 in General, Road Construction & Closures

Conway, South Carolina– The US Highway 17 Bypass and SC Hwy. 707 Interchange Project includes a permanent traffic pattern shift for Old Socastee Highway/ Old Railroad Bed Road. The construction for this shift will begin on Monday, December 2, weather permitting.   


A cul-de-sac will be constructed on Old Socastee Highway approximately 100’ south of the old intersection of Old Railroad Bed Road and Old Socastee Hwy. This work will eliminate the stop sign on Old Railroad Bed Road at Old Socastee Highway, thereby creating a safer and more functional facility. There will still be a 4-way stop condition at Fred Nash and Emory intersection. 

Once under construction, this project is estimated to take approximately three days to complete.
