Steel Girders To Be Set Over US 17 Bypass/SC 707 Intersection for the Southbound Bridge

On December 9, 2013 in General, Road Construction & Closures

Conway, South Carolina – Steel girders for the south bound bridge will be set over the US 17 Bypass/SC 707 and Farrow Parkway intersection starting on Monday, December 16, from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. and continuing the same hours the evening of Tuesday, December 17. If work cannot be completed during this time period, the same operation will continue on Wednesday evening.    

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.     

Once this work is complete the same operation and traffic patterns will be done when the steel girders are set for the north bound bridge, which will be announced at a later date.
