The US-17 Bypass southbound lanes, at the intersection of Glenn’s Bay Road, will be switching onto the new temporary ramps Sunday, July 31, beginning at 6 p.m. Contractors will start the switch at 6 p.m. that evening with the goal of having the shift completed by 6 a.m. on Monday, August 1. During this work, The Lakes subdivision's current entrance on US-17 Bypass will close temporarily until the traffic shift is complete. However, The Lakes subdivision's new second entrance located off of Holmestown Road is scheduled to open on Thursday, July 28, around noon.
Both of the two new access roads at The Lakes subdivision will open at the end of this week. Lake Access #2, which will access Holmestown Road, is scheduled to open Thursday, July 28, around noon. After this road is open, the current access into The Lakes subdivision (Waccamaw River Road) will close the afternoon on Thursday, July 28, so that the pavement can be tied into the new location for Lake Access #1, which is located further south on US-17 Bypass. This road (Lake Access #1) is planned to reopen later in the afternoon of Friday, July 29.
