Bay Road Update

BAY ROAD UPDATE
 
The Bay Road drainage and safety improvements are almost completed. At this point, we anticipate these road improvements will be completed by the end of March, weather permitting.
 
The heavy construction and daily road closures on this project are substantially complete. Pavement repairs (patching) are also complete, and the county’s contractor has now started to widen the paved shoulder before they begin their work to build up the asphalt, which will create a slightly banked roadway along the curve. The road resurfacing and restriping will be the last major work item. 
 
This project is improving safety along the road by widening the grass shoulder and by creating much flatter slopes along the roadside ditch.  
 
As we finish the remainder of the project, we ask drivers in the area to slow down, pay attention to traffic control devices, and look out for crews working along the roadway. Stay tuned to our website at horrycounty.org and our social media feeds for updates!



Bay Road Construction Update

Tuesday, November 12, 2019, through Friday, November 15, 2019, Bay Road will be closed between Blue Heron Boulevard (Myrtle Beach Golf & Yacht) and Freewoods Road from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM for drainage work. Myrtle Beach Golf & Yacht residents will need to access their neighborhood from an alternate route (other than directly from Hwy 707). Myrtle Beach Golf & Yacht and Seacoast Academy traffic will need to utilize alternate routes (other than directly from Hwy 707).

We encourage everyone to be mindful of the work zones affecting the roadways and to remember that 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. 

*Road construction dates and times are weather permitting.
