Upcoming Traffic Pattern Shift at the Horry County Government and Justice Center

The Treasurer’s drive-thru at the main office located at the Government and Justice Center in Conway will be extended to improve traffic efficiency Tuesday, December 29 through Thursday, January 31. Traffic for the drive-thru will enter on Second Avenue and travel through an extended drive-thru lane in the Government and Justice Center parking lot. See the map below. The red and green arrows indicate the flow of traffic for the drive-thru. The spaces marked in blue will not be available for parking. Visitors are urged to drive cautiously in the area and pay attention to directional signs.
