The Bay Road drainage and safety improvements are moving steadily towards completion. The county’s contractor will be on the road over the next couple of weeks to complete the grass shoulder widening, asphalt milling, and final road resurfacing work. Expect intermittent single lane closures during this time.
This project is improving safety along the road by widening the shoulder and by creating much flatter side slopes along the roadside ditch. In addition, approximately 1,200 linear feet of guard rail will be installed at the edge of the new shoulder as shown on the attached map.
We anticipate that all paving work will wrap-up by the end of March, and the guard rail will be completely installed approximately one to two weeks after paving is complete, weather permitting.
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!

Conway, South Carolina – Contractors for the SC-31 Extension Project will open the portion of Enterprise Road that has been closed for approximately nine months on Friday, June 10, at 5 a.m.
The road has been closed since September 2015 to construct the new Enterprise Road Bridge over SC-31.
The SC-31 Extension Project extends the current terminus at SC-544 to SC-707, a distance of approximately 3.8 miles. The project began construction in March 2014 and will be a multi-lane freeway facility with a grassed median that will include a bridge over the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, a partial interchange at SC-544 and a full interchange at SC-707. The approximate $190M total project is expected to be completed in summer 2017.
